I know this is too close to the edge, but I can't crop further out or you would see me. It also explains the slightly crooked horizon.
this was taken using a radio trigger to fire the camera while I stood in the field & threw the umbrella in the air & tried to duck down behind the wheat.
People watching me probably thought I was totally bonkers :)
Unfortunately the iso was at 400. I didn't notice till too late

Here is what I wanted to create.

6.4, good work Peter. The colours do seem faded here. When you showed me this shot on your LCD it seemed to be brighter. Faded colours in a "burst of colour" challenge can hurt. THat being said, very well done :)

Very good idea and well executed, but the colors look faded... and I did look at it on 2 different momitors.

Reminds of the oft appreciated colorful hot air balloon photos. This has has a sense of lightness and whimsy.

Nice image and idea.

I think this would benefit from greater saturation and slightly more exposure, particularly in the field.

I think the image would also have benefited from straightening - the uneven horizon gives an odd feel to the composition.

I'd like to see the horizon line straight across, and it would be cool to see the foreground a little more in focus, but other than that this image is fantastic! Great idea. great use of color, and I can deal with the foreground out of focus with the depth of field honed in on the umbrella.

Might be nicer if the horizon was parallel and the umbrella wasn't as close to the right edge of the photo

If only the horizon was horizontal.

Great idea, and nice simple composition. It certainly meets the challenge perfectly. I am a little bothered by the tilted horizon. It may be a hill, but in this crop that's not evident, and it just looks crooked.
