Vicki -- What a great find. Wonderful comp, curves and lines. Perfect EOD entry. #1143559

Kathy L. Clark 6/19/2009 5:51:23 AM

Very nice image Vicki. That is what you see around here in North Alabama too, but our are straight. I like yours better. #7647254

Vicki L. Filippin 6/19/2009 5:59:30 AM

Thanks Mary Beth..and Kathy
Ours are "usually" straight, too...that's why I loved what I spotted here. I joke that the farmer must have been dipping into the moonshine a bit early, but this area was actually along the property line, which was curved. #7647288

Lynne Morris 6/19/2009 6:09:27 AM

Wow this is fabulous Vicki, great curvy lines. #7647328

Thank you all SO very much! I really wasn't sure if this was going to be eye catching or not. Your feedback gives me confidence! #7647698

The light and leading curvy lines are so eye catching and attractive. Wonderful pov and image, Vicki.

Usman. #7668108

Vicki L. Filippin 6/23/2009 5:02:37 AM

Thanks so much, Usman. They really caught MY eye while driving by them...I didn't want to regret not capturing them right then and there, knowing that in a few days, they just wouldn't look the same. Hubby was patient enough to pull over and let me "create".

WOW! Thank you all SO much. I've been so busy building my website and getting the business going that I hadn't even paid attention to what day it was getting close to and was gone most of the day and all evening. What a pleasant surprise to close my eyes to for the night! Best of luck to all of YOU who received finalists, too!

MY KIND OF IMAGE, RED! Something CORNY that has been CURVED! HA!

Seriously, this is a really neat image. I love the dark rich soil and the beautiful life giving green! It goes without saying how cool the lines are!!!

WOW! HUGE Photobucket on your FINALIST!!!

YeeWhooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!! -Laura :) #7782078

Pat and Graham Robards 7/26/2009 2:47:18 AM

Great job Vicki! I love the lines! ~Pat #7782293

Vicki L. Filippin 7/26/2009 5:38:55 AM

Thanks a heap Laura & Pat. It's funny how we can take our "normal" surroundings for granted, but if you make the time to look at them with a different perspective, it can be ART! You don't get a whole lotta time to get a capture like this...they all grow up SO fast, those little ones, huh? #7782577

Sherran Andersen 7/26/2009 7:49:59 AM

Eye catching... for sure... LOVE the EOD here Vicki... I am jealous lol!! Sherran #7782882

Vicki L. Filippin 7/26/2009 7:57:04 AM

Thanks, Sherran. No need to be jealous...the grass (or corn) always seems greener on the other side of the fence. I think we all get that way when we see what kewl shots other people get of places or thing we would not normally be able to see otherwise. #7782911

Amanda D. Austwick 6/7/2010 6:10:04 PM

Love this Vicki, yes we have lots of rows in peoples little gardens around here, but no big corn fields. Very deserving of a Finalist award!!! #8674385

This is pretty much what you see in my town.
CORN, CORN, and more CORN!
Aside from cropping and some basic edits, this is just how it looked when transforming was done to make the curves.
