I think we got a pretty good crop of Oranges.

Not let's try to get some pictures of the f i e l d s.
Crop fields, force fieds, football fields, battle fields...

As always: fresh pictures only, no massive PS compositing, etc.
For the rest of the basic rules and index please check out this sticky.

Let's have a field day!

    yes. But my bet is on the right one (last one). Haze helps in this case, IMHO..ne_nau.gif

    Hi Manfried,
    I am afraid I did not as he start moving when he saw me.
    When I was coming into the car I saw the dogs running to collect the ships.
    Very nice.
    It was rather late in the evening and I was coming from the football shots. I should go back there some day and take him and the dogs...:D
    All the other shots were done after these.
    For the moment the football shots are here.
    Thank you for asking. Have a nice working week.thumb.gif

    While there is some "field" present, if you ask 10 people to give this picture a title, I'm pretty sure the title would contain the word "sheep" in 9 cases and a word "field" maybe in one or two...ne_nau.gifmwink.gif

    After several days of contemplation, here is a field.

    I converted this in Lightroom, cropped and stroked it in CS2. Other than a little tonal correction, its as shot.magnetic.jpg

    I kinda figured the concept might be a little fuzzy :D Guess I should elaborated

    The sound from an electric guitar is produced by the vibration of the strings in a magnetic field emitted from the pickups under the strings, hence the field. This is a shot of the string/magnetic field interface:ivar

    Got it deal.gif:D
    For some reason I was mostly thinking of the gravitational field holding this whole construction from flying to Mars. I was wrong, I admit it rolleyes1.gifmwink.gifrolleyes1.gif

    Actually, the words "force field" in your original post is what got me thinking of something other than a landscape type of approach. Im not very suited for such as that cause I live in a kinda boring area landscape wise.:snore
