Daily Photograph, December 13

Jumping through some image folders I came across this shot I took on a trip this past summer to the massive wheat fields of central Kansas.  The wind blew and blew strong the 2 days I was there, not uncommon. As I was waiting for the sun to sink lower in the western sky I had this scene behind me. The wind blown Indian grasses are what caught my attention. With the grain bins and implement shed on the edge of the harvested field I felt it worth taking a picture.

This image was converted to black and white in photoshop, with control of the separate color levels I was able to darken the sky and lighten the field. A Topaz Simplify layer was then added using the buzz preset.
