I saw this field when I was travelling back from Manchester and decided to revisit the field a few hours before roll over.
I only had around 30 minutes in the field as it is around 30 minutes drive from where I live.
I took a powerful flash light to illuminate the lead hay bail and hoped the farmer didn't come out as the light was aiming straight towards the house.


Lightroom 3 adjustments.

PSE8 Burn track and lead hay bail. Clone out power line to the right of the farm house. High Pass Filter.

Topaz denoise.

Overall I was happy how this turned out considering I didn't spend that long on the shot. (I hope I don't get punished now)

I'm sure I will get picked up for the bright light in the bottom left of the image... Note to self, next time turn the flash light off sooner.

Nice and my top for the challenge. It does capture the meaning of "rural". Nice toning.

A study in natural sepias - great DOF and fantastic leading lines with the tracks.
