On a beautiful day at a farm near my home freshly harvested hay caught my eye on the way home from work as the shadows became longer. I used a polarizer to deepen the color of the blue sky. I cloned out some telephone poles and some houses peeking through the trees in the backround. Sharpened and enhanced the colors and finally adjusted with Neat Image.

Very nice shot! Very bright all around, good details of the hay and the clouds. I think the perspective might look better if taken a bit lower at the same level as the hay. Or maybe you just wanted to show all of them. Anyway, good job! 9

Incredible DOF and focus! The layers of colors, textures, and detail through the whole focal range really enforce the deep DOF.... 9

Yep. Meets challenge OK. Like the regularity of this - the composition suits the organisation of nature theme well, as does the cleanliness of the scene generally - nice trees, nice grass, nice tidy rolls of straw. Pretty good light, although the golden glow from shooting a bit later would take it completely into the bucolic, and perhaps add even more to the sentimental countryside feel. I can understand your cropping, with those clouds, but I nevertheless think you've included either too much or not enough sky for a really coherent balance of comsposition. 6

Just a tiny bit over sharpened for my taste.

This was exactly what I wanted to do but we had such bad weather all week I couldn't get any of my shots to turn out with the colors I wanted. You did it beautifully! Great minds think alike, you know! ;o)

Very nice capture of the colors. I would have liked to have the horizon off-center to make the composition more interesting. 8

Many people tried scenes in this challenge but most really didn't make it for me. This one did. Not only does it meet the theme perfectly, also it is very beautiful and conveys the feeling of peace. Good one.

There's something about this image that (to me) wants to be b/w or sepia. Color seems to emphasize the individual elements, which aren't all that interesting on their own. Yet, you've captured a mood with this and non color formats tend to convey modds better. Again, that's just how I see this image - it's a nice shot either way.

Great job finding a landscape shot with such prominent objects in the foreground. This is an excellent photo - one of the best in the challenge.
