Bale Of Straw during sunset


DRI made using 2 of the 7 exposures (Smart Object method) and then processed in PS with Nik Color Efex and curves.



Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalk of a cereal plant, after the grain or seed has been removed. Straw makes up about half of the yield of cereal crops such as barley, oats, rice, rye and wheat. In times gone by, it was regarded as a useful by-product of the harvest, but with the advent of the combine harvester, straw has become more burdensome to agriculture.


However, straw can be put to many uses, old and new.


P.S. No, the sun does not set at 14:45 here *ggg* - my d700 is still in set to eastern US time. *remindmyselftosetittotherighttimezonewheniuseitthenexttime*


P.S. 2: Thanks to the 6666 people, who call me a contact - i'm honored :)
