    Stopped by a field during the harvest today. I might go back out early tomorrow morning to see if they are still at it. I only got to shoot for a couple minutes today because they were getting ready to go on their lunch break. This is the only shot I really like out of the 20 or so I took.

    This is the first edit. I'm sure it will go through two or three more before i have it where i want it. I wish I had shot at f/4 instead of f/8. The plants are a bit harsh.

    *UPDATE* A few more shots from this morning. These, agaim, are first edits. I'm shooting a grape harvest tonight.

    Pretty good. I like the way his face is partially obscured,and the way you've shown a couple more workers in the background is nice. The sky/cloud detail is nice. These are the types of hard-working people who harvest crops all across the USA.
