Sorry I missed this earlier, Nikki - especially since I love corn and spent my first summer at BP shooting tons of corn, which, like you, we have a lot of! A very simple, clean composition - so effective! Love the addition of the fence. Congrats on the Finalist and best of luck in the next round! #9371739
