    ...through the oilseed rape! My better half and I enjoyed a short walk through the fields near Ropsley, Lincolnshire, particularly where the path went through this field. The colours made it feel like walking through a Disney cartoon!

    I'm assuming that the crooked horizon is due to it being a hill? I love the leading line and your wife (?) walking away from the camera.

    I'm sure it did! :D
    And the fragrance in the air must have been intense, as must have been the constant hum of the bees!

    Simple, yet so lovely a shot. I love the look of canola fields

    Thanks BoblyBill, Corinna & Antarctican. Yes, the land sloped Bill, and it seemed to add a note that improved the shot. Yes again, it's my wife in her role as reluctant photographer's model :wink:. The only significant work on this shot Corinna was getting rid of all the dozens of blurred insects in the sky. What I liked about this one Antarctican was the absence of trees and telephone poles and wires. They are out of shot to the left!

    Regards, Tony

    I would have liked it better if your wife was on the other side, walking into the photo. You can still try that, cropping it to a vertical.

    Hi there :)

    I like this shot, but for me, not having the person there at all would work best. It leaves the element of mistery intact I feel. Some may dissagree of course, just my take :)

    I like the colors and the path. I think it would help if the horizon was straight

    It's beautiful the contrast yellow of the flowers and blue of the sky.
