I was in hunt of such web from many days & fortunately I got it on right occasion. I considered it as rightly suited for this contest & so far so good.
Though some might feel it as highly postprocessed, it isn't. The background color is golden brown of a wheat field. In post processing some white balance changes in Lightroom lead me to those blue colors which were further tweaked with plain hue/sat,curves & levels adjustment.
Here is my outtake for contest & it is also showing how the original colors were in the image. I didn't considered it seeing a very shallow depth of field but I do like the gradient in background very much.
