I captured this wheat field nearby Londrina. The state of Paraná is the major wheat producer of Brazil, responsible for more than 50% of Brazilian production. Wheat is the most important and most consumed cereal on the whole World.
I chose the classical story of Alexander Dumas, The three Musdetters, to show the critical situation of this crop in Brazil, that needs some rescue. Despite all the conditions to be autosufficient in wheat production, Brazil has to import more than half of our needs, mainly due insufficient support from the country and state governments.

I like thhis composition with a sequence of 3 trees and than an empty space and finally another tree.
The colours are very beautiful and the light too.
Good sharpness on the wheat.
AthaPan (0) 2006-05-21 17:41
Well, in this case I must admit that I do not like the compo, it is too heavy. 1/3 vs. 2/3 sky would come better.
Speak to you

Tudo está perfeito!

Olá, Ricardo! Linda composição minimalista e ao mesmo tempo mostrando uma infinita repetição no campo! Imagino que, agora em Londrina, nos mostrará lindas imagens das plantações desta terra abençoada.

Superb colours Ricardo
I like the sequence of trees..the colours are very beautiful and also the light. excellent sharpness.
riclopes (35577) 2006-05-22 3:32
Excellent minimalist composition, along with a very good and meanful note. I like the alignement of the trees and the empty space left by a missing one. Beautiful green field that remind me my series of Alentejo. Really good work!
Um abraço amigo,

Hello Ricardo, this is an interesting scene and I like your interpretation of it. The sea of wheat makes a good foreground with the detail of the individual stems visible in the very front but merging with a mass of swaying grass behind.
fabio_ts (13696) 2006-05-22 7:17
Perfect title for this superb composition Ricardo, great work, mimimalistic and beautiful!!
have a nice week,

A good POV of the wheat field with the trees in the background, the photo has a good perspective and very nice colors.
feather (51130) 2006-05-22 9:08
Very imaginative and creative title Ricardo, that fits well with the tree guardians of the wheat. I disagree with AthaPan about the ratio of sky v foreground. Firstly because the wheat is your subject and accordingly deserves the most space, and secondly, because the focus on the ears of wheat provide more interest than a cloudless sky.
I love the vivid blue and green of the image.
josepmarin (58357) 2006-05-22 12:02
Buena idea en esta composición tan sencilla pero tan bella. El campo de trigo dominando gran parte del encuadre, el cielo tan limpio y los árboles separando los dos elementos hacen un conjunto con muy buenos resultados.
Buena foto, con buena luz y color.
weswang (18223) 2006-05-22 14:06
Hi Ricardo, A nice color contrast to this picture. Good details and nice depth. The trees are a little too dark from my monitor. I think raise a little light on the dark side may be helpful.
mbaqir (441) 2006-05-23 2:24
Very beautiful shot green & blue. I ithink its one of the best example of rule of third. Like the way you compose two third green grass & one third blue sky. Good POV.
rakeshgupta (2672) 2006-05-23 8:50
This wheat field is looking great. The vertical lines of the wheat crops is making it more attractive. The four trees in the dark position is giving good attention to the crop.
Good colors and contrast.
Thanks for sharing.
atus (15856) 2006-05-23 9:37
very nicely composed shot here from a very good POV. I like that you gave only 1/3 to the sky because this way we have a better sense of depth and the strong green colour is very nice. The title is very funny and fits well with the subjects. Thanks and best regards!
capthaddock (28790) 2006-05-23 10:47
Hi Ricardo - the green and blue make a very pleasant duotone composition, I also like the placement of the horizon and trees, good work.
pranab (5354) 2006-05-24 13:35
good composition with the field and the trees. you have managed to blend the elements very well. good dof and color.
cjmm (4479) 2006-05-24 14:30
I like very much the composition, with a very classical feeling (two thirds terrain, one sky). The two sets of trees are also a sign of very clever framing.
In my case, I think the interest is on the vegetation and not on a cloudless sky, so I like the proportions. (I agree with Kath on that)
Bem feito Ricardo,

Já pensou em vender como papel de parede para o Windows Vista, Ricardo?
Hehehe, maravilhosa foto, uma sensação de amplitude fantástica.
Flavia (10352) 2006-05-26 8:41
Que composicao sujestiva e o titulo e extremamente criativo e engracado! Belas cores, contrastes e profundidade. Gosto sobretudo do POV.
rabani (9645) 2006-05-28 5:27
Hi Ricardo, in photography, sometimes simplicity can be a powerful expose.Especially a silhouette within a bright, strong and colorful backdrop. Just like what youhave here. Your subject, even though lacking in detail as you planned it, give a pulling graphical impression.
rosaline (0) 2006-05-29 4:04
Nice shot, good composition and nice contrast between the different hues of green. The trees on the horizon are impressive and the blue background adds good impact. Nice work.

I feel that basically I can not do much more than repeat what has already been said, because the comments and critiques you've received so far have been quite exhaustive.
I must say that I was immediately impressed with this image when I saw the thumbnail. It's very striking, due to the combination of shapes, forms and limited colours and the excellent composition, itself.
Congratulations on this one.
Interesting note, too.
Floydian (30970) 2006-06-04 4:09
What a nice titel and what a great capture.
The idea is perfect en the result is excellent.
Very good....i really like this.
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-09-30 19:16
I like the minmalistic aspect of this photo with three main elements. Despite this minimalistic aspect your photo is very appealing and well composed with the three trees on one side ant other one alone. The colours and contrasts of your photo are excellent, as the details on the wheat.
velocista (897) 2008-05-11 14:37
olá, aqui está uma daquelas fotografias em que a composição é muitíssimo simples mas que resulta numa fotografia muito bonita. gosto do contraste entre o azul do céu e o verde dos campos. aquelas três árvores dão o toque que falta à composiçao de maneira a nao torná-la simples em demasia. o título é também muito original e adequa-se na perfeição a esta imagem. parabéns.
tiagoalmeida (1475) 2008-05-14 11:00
tem aqui uma bela foto desta seara de trigo.
gosto muit das cores

Ricardo, this is one fantastic image, love your caption as well as the graphism that this image creates. Love the composition, the positioning of elements are perfectly placed. Great work!
