Lovely shot! When I was a kid, the farmers moved away from the traditional rectangular hay bales to these, I remember seeing them the first time and wondering why? what was wrong with the traditional ones? I guess I'll never know!

That sun is amazing - the rays touching the ground. Fabulous in b&w

Nice shot in black and white...these round hay bales are so European.
I didn't know we did it this way in USA.
Looks like I'm not the only one interested in 'round versus rectangular.' :-)
Nice shot and interesting to with BnW as this scene is most likely burning gold

@Formerly Known as MontereyJohn: Thanks. No filter.
Good shot and processing! HDR?

@Paco Díaz: Thanks. No HDR; it probably would have helped
Excellent shot in B & W...
Love the rays of the sun and the bales of hay in the foreground...

Wow, that is a magical shot. Really special. I LOVE the b/w and your starry addition. The seem to be worshipping the sun.

@Bettina: The sunburst was the result of shooting at f/22.
nice capture of sun shine !!

I love the rolled bales! (out here we have cubes..) Aside from that I love that you've included the sun which make it feel as if I have been toiling in the hot sun all day!
25 Sep 2010 4:40pm
The great sunburst goes well with this sun drenched scene. Nicely done.
25 Sep 2010 4:43pm
Oh ! that larger bagels have in USA
25 Sep 2010 5:25pm
So special, Jack. Love that sunburst, but more, the activity captured in the b/w image.

Special effect, well processed.

This is simply breathtaking as a shot, you are really talented.
25 Sep 2010 7:23pm
Wonderful black and white, where the starburst steals the show.
25 Sep 2010 7:55pm
@Curly: Thank you. I find starbursts very tricky. Right now, it seems to be more a matter of luck than skill.
25 Sep 2010 8:39pm
Ooooh!!! That it is beautiful incredible this sunbeam, that gives this tone to your photo..
25 Sep 2010 9:33pm
A 5 ***** shot for real !!!

Another favorite subject of mine. Well done, Jack.

That starburst is brilliant.
26 Sep 2010 12:08am
The brilliant sun sure makes a cool shot.

I tend to like the farm field photos.. my mother was brought up on a farm. So the rolls in the field are a true harvest look.. adding that sun you have an image that's just golden.
26 Sep 2010 3:22am
Love this shot - and love it in B/w -
26 Sep 2010 4:14am
Wonderful Jack ! I love this picture !
26 Sep 2010 7:00am
Love this B&W & compo, splendid.
27 Sep 2010 10:51am
Lovely capture..i have never been able to capture a shot like this without sun flares..you seem to have somehow master that...the difference between square and round roll bails...the round one are less fire prone in the barns and hay keep longer this way..as i was told..
