Hi Folks,
Only had the camera for a few days now and this is my first attempt at uploading a photo, so fingers crossed!

This was taken near my village earlier this evening. I think the field of rape seed is a nice contrast against the dark brooding clouds. Fortunately, the wind was blowing in the opposite direction so my new camera didn't get soaked!

Details: NEX 7 with 18-55 lens, ISO 200, F10 @ 1/160th.

Hope you like it!
Cheers,
Paul

Looks like somebody is about to get wet. ;)

Nice shot. I might try to lighten the foregound a bit, but that's a very personal preference.

Lovely shot, Paul. I like the color version.

Thanks Amin,
the more I look at the image the more I prefer the B&W version.......maybe I'm too close to the image to judge.

The trouble is though, I was reading Salgado's Migration book (Humanity in Transition) earlier and was blown away by the B&W images he shows, so maybe this is why the colour version is not preferred. BUT, originally, when I took the shot I was visualising it in colour!

Great images Paul, I like all 3 versions as they all appeal to me in a different way. Great capture mate.
