Is it ready to harvest, Irene? I remember my Dad going out in the wheat field and checking like this to see if the grain was matured enough to harvest! This is a beautiful scene and brought back wonderful memories! :-) k #8696934

No question about this being a winner Irene and also no question that you made it that way. Again your creative POV paid off, as well as your very creative and accurate use of light and shadow to create just the right tonal balance with the sky and it's rays, the silhouette, and the beautifully lighted foreground. Great job! #9204863

Susan D. Royce level-classic 5/24/2011 6:10:27 PM

Irene, you have a lovely gallery. Will come back often. #9426426

Bunny Snow level-classic 1/22/2012 3:45:33 PM

What a lovely creation you captured and edited. The sky creates your composition and everything has fallen in line perfectly, including your POV. Well envisioned, positioned, captured, and edited. Stunningly beautiful creation.

Congratulations, again, Irene!! #9935774
