Thanks Rainrunner, good Canola crops this season round here . Something I did not know the name Canola originated in Canada.
That windmill is the work of a Dutchman who came to Western Australia ,he decided that he needed a wind mill so he built one more or less by himself.

Canola crops are banned here in the Willamette valley. Has something to do about cross pollination with other crops. Oregon State University is allowed to keep some fields of it for research on that subject, so I guess I won't get any pretty yellow flower pictures like you did...

G'day mate
We have similar issues in Australia with unwanted cross-pollination between organic vs natural vs GM modified crops. It's becoming a legal minefield between the GM makers & the farmers who wish to remain 'pure'. Seems funny how we can't tell the bees which fence they should not cross

G'day Peter

I also love the canola & mustard seed crops for their lovely bright yellows

I'm wondering whether you have too much yellow here - whether a vertical with several flower heads in the foreground and tapering off to the horizon might look better??

Maybe something like this ...


Also - I find that canola crops have a 'heavy green' colour tinge to the stems that seems to lower the contrast. Maybe you could try a contrast boost or 25% - 33% to the image to try for a bit more 'oomph' in the stems
