The Last Stand

...... before being razed and plowed into the earth. I was attracted by all this design-work against the sky. Added a touch of Luminar for PC, AI filter.

Love it! Restful! Evocative! Really very well executed! (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thank you, Chuck. As with many things in this part of the world, one has to be in the right place at the right time. This was caught just one week before the farmer leveled the field, getting ready to plant the next year's corn crop.

Very nice executioin - sharply detailed image of a simple subject, nice use of texture to give it depth and a more artistic and finished look. I like the subdued color palette too. All the elements fit well together.

Thank you Minniev ...... and like you, I thought the color palette was wonderful to work with (perhaps a subdued version of Navy blue and gold which is near and dear to my heart).

There was something subtle about the image that was bothering me. I like the texture but it was that 'just-something' I couldn't quite figure out until I read this, then out of curiosity I ran your image again the Adobe Color Wheel and came up with this.

Curious, I opened the image in Lightroom and used the HSL Targeted Adjustment Tool to identify the color of the cornstalks. I ended up pushing the Luminosity of Orange to +100 and found that subtle difference to be what I was missing. I tried Yellow as well but felt it made the image too light and drifted from the intended mood of the original too much. I wonder if this is more what you were looking for? S-

Thank you for the color explanation, Steve. I was going more for the silhouette-like definition of the stalks against a wan Fall sky, than an artful display of color hues. My workflow almost always includes a stop at the HSL section, so I was content with color selections. The brown hues were telling .... this field was about one week shy of being plowed into the ground for plant fodder.

It's a beautiful image and really fun to work with. Thank you for that! S-
