This is my second shot of the barley. I feel that, had I exposed the image for too much longer the foreground barley would have blurred making identifying with the crop nigh on impossible. This would in turn lose the impact and point of my attempt as it would be a blurry mass of green. Also, this was shot with an ND filter and as you can see even this did not reduce the very bright sunlight. So, any longer and there would be little or no detail beyond that of a very burnt image.
