On our walk the other day we had some broken storm clouds passing over and it created a situation where it would be sunny in one area and just a short distance away would be in the shade. I really thought the way the light made things look was interesting and tried as best I could to capture what I am describing. The study of light is one of my favorite things.

One of your best, Bob. Has a 3-D quality that jumps off the screen.

Thank you very much Walter! It was really cool to watch the light changing, I wish they could make cameras with more dynamic range.

Thanks again!

Bob

Stunning shot Bob! This is something I've been struggling with...the best light seems to come when the weather is it's most unstable..and I'm too big a chicken to bring my gear out in it

Great shot Bob, very striking. Interested to know if the image has been sharpened - the foreground that look about it, but it could just be the natural light reflecting of the stubble.

Cheers,
Ollie

Absolutely stunning! And Bob: photography is the study of light :-)

I really really like this one, like you say the light makes it

Thank you Ollie, John and Jake! Here is some of the info on this shot P. mode f/9, 1/320th focal length 55mm taken with my Nikon D-50. Ollie, I am sure that is the light reflecting off the corn stubble as I did very little sharpning. I did use ACDSee Pro photo manager to edit this photo, it has a really cool shadow/highlight tool in the exposure tools that I think is fantastic!! You can download a 30 day trial to check it out, I highly recommend this software. http://www.acdsee.com/

Thanks again guys!

Bob
