    Great series. I love the first one, sunlit farm fields and storm clouds go so very well together. :thumbup:

    You seem to be enjoying your new camera, which one did you get?

    Thanx for the comment

    Rebel XTi. I don't think I've ever loved a non-living thing so much in my life. And it couldnt have showed up at a better time. I got it the very first day we moved to the farm. There's so many things to take pictures of out there. Every few days I go for walks to the river by myself. I'll disappear for a couple hours and only come home when the memory cards full or the batteries are dead : D
    I was getting so frusterated with film because it cost so much and my pictures were never turning out how i wanted. Now I can make sure that every single one is just how i want it!!!!
    Love love love it!!!!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of digital photography :D

    My in-laws live on a farm, and yes there usually seems to be an endless amount of things to shoot.

    Nice :)

    Number 1 is my favorite. One suggestion on that shot...leave a little field below that bottom hay bail...seems chopped off even though the whole bail is there, because there is no field below.

    Nice.

    i agree with EBphotography about having more in front of the haybail, otherwise a beautiful shot.

    Also, I liked the composition of #12, but if the subject is the old bridge, why focus on the bank behind the bridge?

    One more thing. #13 is really good. Did you do any post processing? It may help the blown sky between horizon and the storm clouds above, but I still like the contrast.

    Thank you all for your comment!!!

    EBPhotography: I believe that one may have been cropped on the bottom a bit due to the top of a bail that snuck it's way into the frame. So I figured that having no field at the bottom was better than having the top of a bail just randomly sort of sitting at the bottom of the picture.
    But thank you very much for your thoughts.
    Since being on this forum I've learned to watch the edges of my frame alot more... but it's still taking some time to always make sure they are composed perfectly.

    kundalini: #12 was shot with my lensbaby. The one support on the left is in focus... well sorta. The lensbaby is real hard to get used to.. especially when I dont wear my glasses. it's real hard to tell what is really in focus and what is sort of sneaking into the world of fuzzyness.
    But yes.. I will keep an eye out for this sort of thing.

    On #13 I did not do any PP. That is basically exactly how the sky looked. If I would've compensated for the light sky in the back then the clouds would've been altered. I took that pic more to show my friends the storms we've been having lately then to be... artistic.


    Thank you all very much for your comments and ideas!
    Greatly appreciated!!!!

    I've always wanted to shoot on a farm, it seems that there's endless photo possibilities.
    Lovely series! I can't pick a favorite, although #3 is excellent. Did you use a Lensbaby for #12?

    Yes I did use a lensbaby for #12.
    There definatley is alot of things to take pictures of.
    I joke that we inherited (or will eventually i guess) 280 acres of junk. lol.
    But I love how all that junk looks in the golden hour.
    It's a third generation farm so there's been stuff building up all those years. There's alot of really neat and old things around.
    I've only begun to scratch the surface of it all!!!
