Photographer's Note

Canada's most fertile land is in the area around Metropolitan Toronto. Canada's most rapidly expanding neighbourhoods are in the areas around Metropolitan Toronto.

Who do you think wins out in this battle?


This photo was taken at midday during a wander around my parents home in late summer when corn fields are lush... well at least in some places...

I took the original and selected the ear of corn in the foreground (which, I admit, I artifically propped up for the pic) and copied to a new layer. I then increased the contrast of the background with curves, I also increased brightness and reduced saturation by a third. I then merged the file and made a copy which I then blurred heavily and reduced opacity to 50%. Finally I feathered the edges and added a white border.

So does it work?
