[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I just bought a polarizer for my lens.

Going back home after work, I wanted to test that as soon as possible, so I decided to stop the car near a field to take some shots

This is my favorite shot for the moment. I like simple composition shot. for this one, i like especially the tones that gives a quiet feeling to the scene, and the short dof.

Salut Olivier
Ca c'est vraiment joli. J'aime beaucoup la netteté sur cet unique épi de blé avec une belle lumière transversale. De plus c'est du plus bel effet avec cette profondeur de champs réduite. Superbe.

Hi Oliver,

I love this picture so much. I read it recently on the techniques on taking this type of picture in a magazine and since then i fell in love with it. Definitely one of my favorite pics.

Cheers AJ786

Bonsoir Olivier,
un message que celle-ci avant de partir sur le champ de blé II. J'aime bien la vue sur ce point donné et unique que ce épi de blé qui se démarque, un original certainement ;OD, de par sa couleur et bien sûr la maîtrise de ton focus, du reste.
Bonne fin de semaine,

Tres belle photo avec ce plan net sur un unique epi . c'est tres joliment réussi Olivier .

Bonsoir Olivier,

Simple, mais sympa, avec de beaux détails.

Morning Oliver
Your time along the road was well spent - nice capture. looking at your shutter speed it must have been windy. Like your selection of DOF.


I love the clarity of that one single piece of corn...it looks good, the way the background seems to melt into the rest with one thing just barely standing out!

good job

on ne cherche plus si profondeur de champ
ou reglage de flou magnifique

Hello Olivier,
Attractive details in the main straw!
The scenery has a fine feeling of depth, and rich colours...
Well composed presentation!

Well done Olivier. I do like your OOF background and with the one grass standing out so clearly - BRAVO!

bonne profondeur de champ,
focaliser sur ce blé est une très bonne idée,
