I love barley fields in early summer. The soft stalks wave in the slightest wind like a green carpet. Add some dramatic clouds to it and you got me.
This photo is actually made of three exposures combined to an HDR image and then tonemapped to have a dramatic, somehow cinematic look. I didn’t want to achieve a too “grungy” look, like many HDR photos have.
Photo data: Pentax K20D with DA 18-55 AL II lens at 18 mm, f 11 at ISO 200, exposure bracketing.
uhh and it was made after a short Storm photo hunting.. after a storm with strong winds, heavy rain and including hail hit us some minutes before this photo was taken. We ran out of home because the clouds were totally impressive! This photo was taken south of the Schlei.
