The Golden Hour by allym007 The Golden Hour by allym007
Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold

Lyrics from Fields Of Gold by Sting

For my friends who asked :

Shot taken 03 July 2008 - 8:44pm
Warm summer evening, no wind

Canon 40d + Sigma 10-20 :camera:
1/40 s at f/5.6
Focal Length 15mm
ISO 100
Tripod
Polarizing filter

3 pictures with exposure -1 / 0 / +1 merged into 1 HDR shot with photomatix.
Saturation and strength ajusted :)

Opened in Lightroom to add the copyright info and do some sharpening ;)

Time of post-processing : about 10 minutes.

I hope this helps ! :iconlovehug:
