Field of Yellow

we have these lovely weeds that grow each year in our fields. we used to call them wild mustard, but we found out that was wrong. so, now i'm not sure what they're called. at any rate, these grow wild and exist before the fields get planted with corn or soybeans.

this year they were even more plentiful than normal due to some heavy rains and late planting. i kept driving past them and finally drove back and got some shots.

this one i'm posting was a test of sorts of the panarama feature of my camera. i was quite surprised how well it came out. you shoot the first shot, then the camera processes that one and puts a thumbnail of it up in viewscreen and you line that up to take the next one and then one does the same thing so that you can line up the third and final shot. the camera then does the stiching all by itself. it came out pretty seamless. i was impressed.

anyways, feel free to use it here on RP.

Re: Field of Yellow

Great Shot Craig, I'm gonna have to take a shot at this this evening.
Ya know? it really looks like Canola (grown as a crop up here in Canada...) we have lots of Canola fields but it won't be blooming here yet (another month?), when it does I'll go get some shots to see...

Re: Field of Yellow

oh, how cool, lyle. was totally not expecting anything like that

thanks, palms

hi sherry. yes, it does look a bit like canola. they've grown it around here, too... for a while, though hardly any more now. post your shots here when you get them, ok?

I can't take credit for 'sketch and color' it's not one of mine, I've used it though, it's a great effect! It's AndrewB's, had to look it up.

I started out playing with Filter Forge but ended up with this. Didn't want to crop the panarama but had to to keep the file size down...
