Vast fields of canola used in the production of margarine. HP scanjet 4470C with xpa. Not the ideal scanner to scan slides but this was the best I could get. Nikon F601 camera, Fuji velvia film.

There are a few soft parts in the image, but the colors and your composition make everything click. This is a wonderful image, very well done.

I really liked the lighting and angle; thanks to them, you were able to get a wonderful shade of green.

I do believe you are the victim of a bad scan here. Things look soft and the color is not as brilliant as I would expect from Velvia. The composition here is very nice, although somewhat spoiled by the powerlines in the distance. Perhaps some sharpening and other adjustments in Photoshop can bring this closer to what I am certain is a beautiful slide.

Actually, and I am sure you know, the plant is called rape. They just made the name of the oil Canola as in Ca(nada) ola (oil).
This shot, deserves a bit of PShop in the upper left... get rid of that stuff that's barely visible. It looks like maybe a bit power pole and maybe some gunk on the scanner.
It's a darn good shot, i love the nice primary colors look you have going here!

I like this shot...the proportions are nice, and the subject quite lovely. It is a shame about the soft scan, as the colour is muted and some areas of the pic are fuzzy. At first I thought possibly underexposed, but it's hard to say.
And I must point out that it could well be canola, since canola is NOT a brand name but a genetically variated product based on rape. The 'can' comes from the fact CDN scientists originally bred the plant. Canola oil is NOT rapeseed oil, although they do come from the same family of plants.
