Last week we had a long weekend here in Poland and I had the chance to get out of the city and I head to the country. It was fantastic to breathe the fresh air and not being surrounded by the noise of the hustle and bustle of the city. It was quite a warm day but I could feel a chill in the wind as the morning went on and it started to cloud in. While strolling along I came across a barley field dotted with cornflower and poppies on the edge, and I had to have a photo.
I choose a low angle looking up at the sky. I metered for the green of field and then raised the camera to add the sky to the composition. I bracketed the scene +/- 2 stops, I processed the frames in HDR Efex and then made additional adjustments in Lightroom.

I appreciate you telling us how you took the picture and what you have done in the post-processing. For a beginner like me, every detail helps. You are a “natural” teacher!
