This is a very broad challenge and I think there is something for everyone.

About a week ago, Schmiedel posted a topic suggestion that listed several different venues for photos such as desert, mountains, etc. I will hold those ideas in reserve but the concept inspired me to come up with this idea.

We are looking for farm pictures. Anything relating to farming or ranching. These could include, but are not limited to:
  • Photos of farms showing buildings etc.[/*]
  • Photos of old barns[/*]
  • photos of farm machinery, modern or old in any farm related setting
  • Photos of farm animals grazing or in the barnyard[/*]
  • Photos of crop planting or harvesting[/*]
  • Photos of ranching operations including cattle herding or roundups[/*]
  • Photos of farms in countries other than the USA. If you live outside the USA, we would really like to see what your farms look like[/*]
  • Photos of vinyards or groves of fruit trees[/*]
  • Photos of trucks hauling grain or produce to market.[/*]
  • (this is stretching it a bit) Photos of farmer's markets.[/*]
We do not want to see childrens toys, stuffed animals, or animal sculptures. We want to see the real thing.

As always, do your best to make a pleasing well composed image. Pay attention to the edges of your viewfinder for things you don't want in the picture. Keep an eye on the sun and watch for shadows that may either enhance your photo or detract from it. Watch the depth-of-field and white balance. In other words, show us photos that are worthy of a gallery. This is NOT a competition but you are encouraged to show us your best.

Please put Down on the Farm in your subject line.
