    I like this shot. Big fan of well done B/w. Looks nice and peaceful; a nice break from the news of New Orleans. The photo makes me want to run into this field and stay a while.

    Random -- the ATL to Midway... is that supposed to have sound? I had no sound using Firefox.

    Interesting. The selective focus creates a sort of "transversal tunnel vision" which works well with the rich texture of the wheat.

    I can almost feel my hands stroking the wheat as I walk through the field... beautiful.

    Miles - I am going through a uninspired time with my photography at the moment - you know, a lot of stuff is cliched. This one restores my faith in landscapes - it is a bit different and is inspiring me. Well done.

    don't know why miles but this shot, i really like, and also it reminds me of takaaki okada's photo of what is probably 'the gates'...you know which one i'm talking about...

    love that wide angle man.

    Beautiful image. I like how the B&W highlights the lines of the wheat, sky and trees. Plus the perpective makes me feel like Im hiding in the grass, I really love that.

    good use of dof, and i like little bent horizon line

    Certainly a cool result at 1.8, I love the texture in the middle of the picture. Did this one need much postprocessing?

    Miles-I'm coming off of a summer on things other than photography. Coming back to visit some old favorites, and yours is first on the list. Great use of shallow DOF, and good attention to your BW tonality. take care, ed

    Using a narrow dof to isolate the mid ground is a technique I really like, but I've never managed it myself. This is a great example. The black and white tones are lovely.

    I have to agree with all the above. Wonderful shot!

    Groovy shot. I like how the DOF is reminiscent of the toy model effect.

    Thanks all, this one didn't need any added blur for a change :) The only post was converting to black and white and I added a slight vignette on either side, enhancing a natural darker part of the image, to pull the eye up evenly.
