Default Yellow

Fields of canola are now in full blue in Southern Alberta. The bright yellow flowers provide a great contrast against the blue summer sky.

I agree with Ned - that 3rd one is a knock-out, lovely lighting.

i love these.

simple but elegantly composed, great color harmony. i have a hard time picking a favorite.

i am going to buck the trend here and go with #2. i just love the simplistic comp with low horizon and the repeating patterns of the grain bins on the lower left, the 1 door open breaks the repeating pattern in a good way. so lucky there a bit.


also love #1 for the rolling hills broken up by the turbines. too bad the left turbine blade is going into the horizon, wish it were above.

#3 is really nice lighting. but for me it doesn't evoke the same summer lightness and happiness that i get when viewing the first 2.

less is often more. these are a good example.

Hi NO,

I definitely see Hard's points, but I think I'll have to go with #3. I like the tighter FOV that allows me to see more detail in the foreground, and the contrast between the flowers and the green in the midground before it breaks to the sky. The clear skies are gorgeous, but the clouds add interest and texture for me.

I do like them all though. . . I've got little ability to "see" compositions like these when I'm out and about -- some kind of mental block of a predominantly tele shooter apparently. I like it when others take advantage of them and post them so I can see perspectives that I've obviously missed.

Nice ones. I prefer the third one also.

Thanks everyone for your comments and critique. There are 1000's of acres of canola planted in my immediate area and the photo ops are endless. There is about a 3 to 4 week window of opportunity to shoot canola when it is full bloom. Soon the flowers will turn to seed and harvest will begin. But in the meantime the fields look stunning in early morning and early evening light.
