Dear Nick, I absolutely have to say that I love this picture!!! In it everything is so perfect, complete and at the same time has a lovely and delicate mood inside it...It seems ancient and melancholy, it is absolutely my favourite among the ones with the barley field. Maybe this is because the composition is particular and elegant...I don't know exactly why, but I like it very much and I would give it a Golden Star.

Thank you for sharing, my dearest one!

Hugs, Valeria

Nice one, Nick - love the bright red poppies and the soft barley colours and that windmill silhouette. Very nice.

Even the clouds obediently played along, all streaming in the right direction drawing your eyes towards the middle. You could have painted it, it's so perfect composition-wise!!

Good shot, Nick - well done!!

Cheers, Hazel

Hazel Coetzee ~ Well it looks like you'll just have to paint it for me Hazel as it is ages since I have done any myself! :)

I'm really chuffed that you find the composition that good ~ thank you kindly :)

and I must agree that it contains lovely elements and of course I waited for the clouds to be as interesting as possible ~ Thank you so much for your wonderful appraisal Hazel and very best wishes to you ~ Ciao nick
