Hope these circles are meeting the challenge !



P.S. :

- crop

- automatic levels

- automatic contrast

- a big soft burn tool brush on sky highlights

- a big softsharp tool brush on the hayon the right

Nice shot. I like the sepia tone. And, yes, I think you have met the challenge but Barbara has the final say on that!

Of course it meets the challenge, and it does so beautifully. The composition is excellent.

Man you beat me to the haybales! Haha, I was at the ranch today and saw those babies, took a couple of piccys, and edited them, but don't worry, I've got some more tricks up my sleeve! (runs off to post first challenge piccy)

I think you did an awesome job on this pic! Much better than any of mine! The angle is perfect... makes me feel like im at the ranch again! Groovy!

Love that shot! Excellent compostion and the sepia tone is a great touch! I love how the barrel on the left just drew my eye right into the picture.

The toning is nice but the composition is wonderful. Was this your crop or did you take this in a 2x3 format? I like it.Big Time.

I think that this shot is compelling in its simplicity. Very nice.

I've always wondered about how the farmer decides to harvest the hay - some harvests are done by baling the hay into the usual rectangle shapes, and elsewhere we see the hay rolled up as in this photo. Is it just the equipment that the farmer has available which dictates it or is there some rational reason. I could see where rectangular bales are easier to transport, so perhaps that's the deciding factor...

Excellent job sergio. But did we expect anything less?

It was a crop Suzan, the simplest yet the most powerful tool every editor has !

BTW, how can u take a shot in 2x3 format ? Does you camenableyou to do that?

geoff : I don't know. Bayling into boxes has the advantage of space optimization ( no holes left when put side by side ) both in transport and in stocking, whereas bayling into cylinders allows maybe for bigger dimensionshence speeding up load/unload operations.
