    If all goes according to plan, every couple of days I will be making an image from this same exact spot to visually document how fast corn grows. I just realized, I need something in the foreground of the image for scale. (I make no promises, this is a low priority project. :lol:)

    I know the horizon is in the center of this photo. It won't be long till we can no longer see the horizon, for the corn.

    Central Iowa, approx. 7 PM (GMT -6), looking due North | Lat: 42 Long: -93 | Elev: 1014 ft. | Pop: 170

    Beautiful. I love corn fields for some reason. Who says the horizon has to be in the top or bottom third anyway? Isn't it up to the photographer? I usually find myself doing as you did.
    Also did you use a ND grad?

    Plant it and they will grow.


    Does anyone realize that the 'Field of Dreams' farm is up for sale? The curent owners take it upon themselves to keep the field prepared and maintained, but are ready to retire. They want the tradition to continue with the new buyers. The homeplace gets many visitors each year.

    Nice image. Will be interested to follow the progression.

    Are you kidding me! ("Is this heaven?" "No, this is Iowa".)

    It was front page, headline news here in Iowa.

    No, no filter but next time I'll use a CPL.

    I figure the corn stalks will top out at about 8 feet to the top of the tassels.

    5/18/10.

    All new images will be posted at the beginning of the thread.

    We are under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. The spot I'm taking this shot is on the route I walk several times a day and is about a quarter of a mile from the house.

    I just did my evening walk between downpours and still was able to shoot at about 7 PM.

    The overcast was very heavy and you can see from the EXIF it was made at 1/25, f/8, ISO 200, while the first was 1/800, f/14, ISO 200.

    I also didn't mention the gear I'm using:

    Nikon D300/gripped
    Nikon AF-S 12-24mm f/4G (@ 12 mm)
    Handheld
