This is a working/living historical farm near where I live. Things here are done in the way they were in 1880's. They have live animals and as you can see, plow the ground using horses and oxen. Its very much a learning experience.

steps: clarify, levels, usm, crop, border, resize, sharpen

thank you for the votes. I really love this photo and yes its fallow ground and it was shot with an Olympus E 500

I just noticed that this is in Canal Winchester. We may have to take the family down and check this place out sometime soon. This is a great shot and I am very happy to see it place and score as well as it did. Nice work.

I'm wondering why you placed the subject in the lower left? Is that really fallow ground? Anyway...it's a very nice photo...8

Interesting scene; the problem (with this challenge, that is) is that people will be looking for the intersecting thirds. One farmer and horse would have been brilliant, but two of them make it more difficult to judge.

Seriously, I like the image. Has nice colors, clear focus, and meets the challenge.

Very beautiful and very sharp! I guess it was made with a Nikon camera.

where is the thirds?

Very nice photo! I am very curious what made you place this in the top 1/3, my instinct would of been to place in the bottom 1/3(not saying one is better than other, just looking for more insight into compositions).

This looks like a calendar shot. Very well seen and captured! Nice DOF, followed the ROT's just fine, and very good clarity and focus here. Fair shot at the front page with this one! ;^) Smile and keep having fun.
