Beautiful angle! It gives it a very dramatic feel. Nice job.

Must be getting pretty ripe to be bent over like that. Beautiful use of contrasting backgrounds to frame the subject.

I think this shot would make for an excellent calender shot. It has a good DoF and excellent clarity. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005. <7>

Difficult to do a better capture on a rather mundane subject. Love the juxtaposition of the heads of barley in the fore- and background. Excellent exposure. 7

A classic stock shot. The power of grain! These are some of my favorite "farm" agriculture types of shots. You render this one very nicely. You have one major (what the heck do they call a single barley plant? ) barley as the main element, and have the rest of it faded out pretty well. I might have moved the lower barley to further isolate the to one. The biggest improvement that can be made here is more previsualization, and as a result more environment control. (ie. move the stalk of something (stalk! That;s the word I wanted) that moves at an odd angle, move the lower stalk etc.) Still a really cool shot. 8

i really feel for those who don't give this image the time it deserves. i love the range of colors. as i have nothing else to offer, i'll just sit and enjoy it for a moment, if you don't mind. good luck in the challenge!

Who knew barley could look so perfect. Evidently you did. And that earns you a nine in my book.

l like the gold and blue. perhaps a little more DOF on the tip of the plant would make it stand out

Aesthetically very nice -- it's a photo that draws you in a bit because of the colors and composition.
