    Golden Wheat on the Beach

    Well, not wheat, but that grass just glows when the morning light hits it...

    Golden Wheat on the Beach

    This composition feel too 'smothered'?

    As someone who likes to take closeups - I like it. But then you did waste a perfectly good looking sunrise by not going wider and further from the subject. Or did you???

    A good idea, well done.

    Don't know what the depth was in terms of the from the front of the grass to the back, but I wondered how it would've been if the DoF was slightly greater and we saw all of the grass in focus, but the background was kept out-of-focus as it is. Would that shot have been possible?

    I like it every one dose sunsets/sunrises it’s something different.

    I don't know what you mean by "smothered" in the context of this image, so I don't see anything being smothered. I like the concept a lot but I agree with Donald that I would like to see more of the grass in focus.

    Donald, I absolutely agree; and when you pointed that out it clicked that I need to do a better job of 'making' these shots, instead of 'getting' them.

    Thank Bobo, I actually cropped out the sun because it was overpowering the shot. That said, I do have quite a ways to go on those sunrise shots - practice, practice, practice...

    You're probably aware that this scene could have produced a nice sunset shot with the wheat shown in silhouette. Just a reminder of a very different look that can be had in this situation.
