This is basically two wheats and sprinkled salt on a large piece of glass. One meter behind it is a blue cardboard. Two 500 watt light bulbs and a 100W were used. A yellow filter was used for the golden light on the wheats.

A true work of art - very well planned an executed. Lighting on the wheat is exceptional as is the composition. Perfect focus - must have been no wind at all (assuming it was done outdoors.) Backgroun sky and stars are the final great touch. You should score very high - but the competition is truly tough this time.

Stunning work. simple effective and perfectly executed. 10 I just had to come back and say,, I think this is, quite possibly, a perfect image. Bravo!

A simple and yet intriguing image - the heads of corn seem to be bathed in a golden light and yet the stars are still clear in the sky. Pretty cool. Nice composition also.

The color is Perfection. It makes the entiere shot work. I just cant stop looking at it. I wish i could add something constructive but what can one say about such a perfect shot.

This is an exceptional photograph. A 10.

Vert cool effect having the daylight in the corner and the night above. I like the simplicity of this one. It looks especially good on my mac with its brighter color. Good job.

The type of image where digital photography and techniques come to the fore.
Wonderful picture..certain to do well.
07/02/2004 12:10:15 AM
Extraordinary! I'd love to find out how you did that (assuming that really is the sky, if it's a solid background then that's cheating and I'm not interested) - 8

Wow -- nice work!

Brillaint image from a creative genius.

Beautiful. One of those images that stick out amongst the thumbnails and then also doesn't disappoint when you open it up. The gradient sky and the stars alone would make a superb image. The two ears of wheat are a nice counterbalance and are fabulously lit. The two (wheat and sky) almost look like they haven't been photographed at the same time (no, I'm not accusing you of cheating :), I'm curious about the lighting, did you light the wheat separately? Will check comments after the voting is over.
