I think that's the perfect title for this composition, Tim.

Lovely perspective and colour, and yes, the subject is daydreaming about something, perhaps the thing she clutches in her hands....

And the moody sky adds an air of impending rain and storm in which she will run around in the field, arms outstretched, soaking wet and glad to be alive...

Superb, matey smile
tim hitchins: ha well i love your thoughts on this Paul, not sure my daughter would run around in the rain though too worried about getting her hair wetsmile Most appreciated Paul and have a good day 2mo.
Wonderful atmosphere. Great photograph for stiring the imagination, too. Already I am weaving a story around the gir. (:o)

Love the photo - the sky, the focus, the position of the girl - it all works really well. As for titles - that's a personal matter. Some pictures don't need them - I think this is probably one of them. I tend not to title individual images, but give a title to a series. But each to his own!
tim hitchins: yes your probably right Ingrid, glad you liked it though, cheers.smile
I love this Tim. The perspective to the light is fabulous. A dream!
tim hitchins: most appreciated Richardsmile

Tim, I love the way the wheat fields sway in the breeze and your daughter seems to become part of it.

The crop on the top is a bit too thigh and I would have liked a bit more space from her head to the top of the photograph.
tim hitchins: your so right Kathryn and i let the stupid rule of thirds sway me on this, 1/3 sky,2/3 field, stupid as i dont normally care for the rules and adding more sky would have helped with the atmosphere, oh well go with my own rules from now onsmilecheers Kathryn and have a nice day.......Tim.

This wonderful photo has captured a really moody story - it's intriguing. I like the leterbox crop but I'd like to see a bit more of that brooding sky.

Great shot.
tim hitchins: oh i know harv should have added more just went for the composition and the thirds rule which i really dont care for, oh well lesson learnt Harv, most appreciated m8.

Don't care about the title..the picture is beautiful..
tim hitchins: well thank you so much adahsmile
A very nice feeling to this picture Tim, and nothing wrong with the title either.
tim hitchins: well most appreciated Briansmile
I also think this picture would have been better with more sky to balance it. Otherwise, its a very nice photo.
tim hitchins: yes point taken and noted Sheilasmile thank you so much.
This is indeed a very moody shot with great colour saturation too and a sense of movement in the crop
tim hitchins: thanking you kindly sirsmile and have a good evening.

tim hitchins: cheers Martinsmile
No, I spend more time waiting for the missus to get changed after working outwink
tim hitchins: oh i know how you feel mateysmile
I believe that you have not been mistaken in the title, Tim. The photography enchants to me, I like muchÂ… in addition I believe that it is an image that goes much in my line or my idea of photography! I congratulate to you! Ahh! For my a Likey!
tim hitchins: well thank you so much Jose, yes i feel it is something i must try harder to do conveying a mood in a photo that is, most appreciated Josesmile
It's a far better picture than the awful film that has the same name tongue
tim hitchins: lol your not kidding Bill, bloody awful filmgrin cheers Billsmile and have a good night.
Nice, it's like a dream - the vignetting efffect adding to that feeling - I find titles difficult too...though it doesn't help you much knowing that wink
tim hitchins: lol i guess not m8grin and cheers Askel.Have a good weekend.
title works for me

lovely image

I was thinking about the "rule of thirds" and also how shots of water/seascapes (and typically those with strong reflections) tend to follow more of a "rule of halves" - ie 50% above the horizon, 50% below. Couldn't help but feel that your field of wheat is an awfully lot like a "sea of wheat" - what happens if you devote half of the composition to the field (rather than 2/3rds) and half to the sky? (keeping the girl off-centre to the right)?

More like fields of gold Tim..!!
Reminds me of the sweeping scene in Gladiator with the melodious music playing. Beautiful and powerful 'mood' capture.
