.....That's what they remind me of
Done using my odd "DIY HDR" i.e. take 3 shots -1,0,+1 and then hand combine them. Perhaps that makes me a Combine Harvester!!(Arf, arf!)
Wow who needs specialist programs and plugins if you can do it like this, brilliant image Chris both from the point of view of composition and your superb processing

The result is a very natural image - the farmer was lucky to get that lot baled up in dry weather.......
29 Aug 2012 6:28am
Love the POV and processing
you are a CH, 1st class!
29 Aug 2012 6:42am
Terrific work on the HDR - what you might call rolling several shots into one!
29 Aug 2012 6:58am
Das ist sehr gut geworden.
29 Aug 2012 7:02am
Such a plentiful field!
29 Aug 2012 7:13am
Magnifique cadrage, splendide profondeur. Bonne journée.

I love these big hay balls, every time I drive past them in a field I have an urge to snap them, I always take HDR in ths way too, didn't realise it was an old method :-,( either way good combining and a beautiful harvest :-)

@Ainsley: (Long response - sorry) I'm a great believer that Canon/Nikon/Adobe whoever do a better job than me. After all they've got 1000's of really bright people working for them. If in doubt, I always start with "Factory reset" on a camera, or hit the "Auto" button in Photoshop. BUT, there's a few things that they get badly wrong. ALL my cameras, have always converted a light blue, overexposed sky to a revolting Cyan/Turquoise-skies never look like that to my eye and it drives me nuts. I've become dissillusioned with all the Commercial HDR packages. They never produce what I want-a true representation of what I see-as I scan a scene with my iris opening and shutting. So this "Odd" method is one that gives me the closest to what I see. I have no idea whether it's old, new or whatever, and it does take a lot longer than using a package, but it gives me what I want-an image that looks the same as the scene I saw.
I think we need to seperate the wheat from the chaff here and bale you out on this one Chris. Go get your oats boy he says with a rye smile. Oh nice viewpoint by the way

very appealing compo and result of your processing, great dof as well! i wouldn't have recognised this as HDR, though ...
29 Aug 2012 8:23am
A good idea ... ! An excellent HDR style Chris! very interesting ... It is true that remind cotton rolls only if you rub the wound with that you should cut the arm or leg... A hug, Adela

a roll of hey... fantastic
29 Aug 2012 9:47am
This DIY HDR shot is so much better and true to life than most i´ve seen.Very well done..
29 Aug 2012 10:19am
Arf; Arf; Looks good however you did it. Reminds me of the plains states.

Regardless what your shooting style makes you, the result is fantastic!

The end of summer...
29 Aug 2012 1:24pm
je n'ai qu'une envie de les rouler
29 Aug 2012 1:27pm
magnifique ce paysage
29 Aug 2012 1:28pm
Can't go wrong with a superb image and a good closing pun with a double "arf" !
29 Aug 2012 2:32pm
A great combine ! Superb photo !
29 Aug 2012 3:00pm
Very autumnal view.
29 Aug 2012 3:14pm
Great shot. I like how you have made the hdr, looks really great.
29 Aug 2012 3:36pm
Your HDR is magnificent ... don't change it if it's working!
29 Aug 2012 4:17pm
Love the colors!!!
29 Aug 2012 4:23pm
Great colour in this shot Chris. Do you ever play with the colour or is this all the camera's own doing?
29 Aug 2012 4:25pm
@David: I absolutely do play with the colour, but not on this one.
Text and Image are perfect. I really envy your efforts and completely enjoy your words and compositions...Sorry I am noit writing but I am looking Not sure when this madness is going to stop...Thanks you for bringing good things every day :-) ps - loved the Alice Cooper one and the camping pone with your son taking over the duties of camp cook...mine has done the same thing :-)
29 Aug 2012 4:32pm
Lovely scene, if it was on a hill, would you push it?
29 Aug 2012 4:45pm
@The Mouse: It was a good 8ft tall, so a bit big to shove, but smaller, on a hill, no doubt about it!
Très belle composition, j'aime beaucoup cette image. Le traitement est superbe.
je ne joue pas avec les traitements sauf correction, contraste sur photoshop. je shoot les photos en RAW. Le HDR, C'est compliqué pour moi au niveau informatique, et les solutions picasa ou autres ne ne conviennent pas. donc je laisse mes photos comme je les vois.
29 Aug 2012 5:23pm
Yes the do look like giant cotton reels in the field. I love when they are dotted in a field like this, they become quite scuptural.
29 Aug 2012 7:47pm
Great job aligning three images. Even when I take HDR on my camera I have a hard time getting them to line up unless I use a tripod. These round bales fascinate me. I kind of miss the square ones.
29 Aug 2012 8:09pm
Great work Chris
29 Aug 2012 9:00pm
Beautifully done. Exquisite composition and detail !! Terrific.
These round bales remind me of my time in France. Here in the USA we have square bales and so of course the round ones seem more exotic !! :-)
29 Aug 2012 9:37pm
Fantastic POV! That sky is amazing! Wonderful image!
29 Aug 2012 9:58pm
beautifully done. excellent use of a 16mm focal length
29 Aug 2012 10:09pm
Very nice perspective on the close to far bales, and a delightful sky.
30 Aug 2012 12:48am
I love the detail in that first roll... I've always wondered how they stay tight.
I laughed out loud at your joke. :-)
30 Aug 2012 4:44am
Nothing wrong with this one, super perspective and composition!
30 Aug 2012 8:41am
Wonderful composition and processing. Excellent POV. Great shot. :)
