In this edition of What’s your fancy?, I’m offering three photos of a common scene around these parts this time of year. Corn.
I took these two shots with my Nikon D5200 and used a 55mm-300mm Nikkor lens. The shutter was set at 1/400 and the aperture was 4.8.
Post shot editing
I used FX Photo studio on two of the three photos for post editing. The styles are listed below each photo.
So what’s your fancy?
For something as honest and unpretentious as cornfields and a silo, the first one works best. 🙂
The top one’s the top one. And, not to push a link on you, but sweet corn’s the only corn for me: http://wp.me/p1iGqw-An
Nice job! Thanks for the share.
I love the real beauty of the first shot. But on a different day, I may be drawn to the mood of the second. It feels a little like I’m about to walk into a film.
while all three are great and depending on my mood I could love any, I have to say today the top one is my fancy today! I see you are using a 55 – 300 nikkor…I recently purchased a 55 – 200 nikkor and I’m wondering if I jumped the gun a bit because it was affordable??? is there a “huge” difference do you think?
Thanks Heather. I don’t think there is a huge difference. You should be fine with the 200mm.
I like the first non-edited one, but would like to see it cropped the way you cropped the next two. Great photo.
Thanks. Good idea.
I like the first one.
Top and bottom!
Bottom and Top! 🙂 Thanks Mike.
I like the original, as always. But seen as its corn, the yellow works well. 🙂
Each one has its own personality and draws you to a different detail, the first one for the silo and the bottom one really draws attention to the corn. all great shots in ther own right
Thanks Mike. 🙂
The original one for me. The other two are kind of scary.
Ha. 🙂 Thx.
Definitely the top one, captures the wholesomeness of a cornfield.
Yes, definitely the first one!
The top one first, followed by the last one, then the middle one. I picked the last one second because the yellow of the corn with wisps of green presented a happier/soothing/upbeat emotion to the harsh/imposing red silo picture.
Thank you Gene.
The first one is my favourite too.
Seems to be the consensus.
The first one is the best … though, there is something interesting about the third, with just the focus on the yellow … but, I think the first one really works the best.
I like the golden in the third one.
Love the………oh I can’t decide, but I’m drawn to the last one!
Corn is always such a beautiful thing to shoot… maybe because it is a grass? I don’t know.
Maybe. 🙂 Never thought of it that way.
I think I like the full-coloured one.
Thanks. 🙂 x
I like the first one best, though the last one does a nice job of highlighting the corn itself.
I love all of them but I truly love the third.
Thanks. 🙂 It’s interesting what people like.
Black and white, red comic; however on a separate note: the first pic strangely sent me into thoughts of the balloon in Oz
I can see that. Thanks for the visual.
The first! It reminds me of the miles and miles (and miles) of cornfields I rode through last week!!
Like them all, but if I had to vote it would be number three.
Thanks David. 🙂
I think the original works best.
Thanks. Seems to be the popular thought.
I fancy the first one.
Reblogged this on Adithya Entertainment.
I like the first one!
Thanks Elizabeth. 🙂
I like them all each with thier own uniek likeablity. 🙂
