"October Contest: Harvest" Tue 01-Oct-13 10:29 PM by dm1dave
This months theme, selected by last months winner, ericbowles, is Harvest.
From Eric, Lets see your best landscape image that represents the harvest season. Autumn is the time of year normally associated with the harvest. I think of hay bales in the field, wagons of pumpkins, vineyards with ripening grapes, apple trees covered with red ripe fruit, and colorful fields of corn and wheat.
The image still needs to be a landscape image. Buildings, people, vehicles or manmade elements may be present as long as they are not the subject of the image.
Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way help us become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.
These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.
The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.
The winning image will be added to the Landscape Forum Winners Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

This is a scan of a print I did sometime in the '60's. The sky was added in the darkroom using standard darkroom techniques not photoshop. Once scanned, I applied curves and used NIK Filters in Photoshop

There are many things that say harvest, the Farmall tractor is one of them. As I was composing this a gentleman had walked up behind me. I asked him if it was his tractor and he replied yes it is. He had been moving some brush & timber around and out of the fields for which they were harvesting corn & beans. Apparently the tractor stopped running right there in between those two trees. His misfortune seems to have been my good fortune. Funny how things work like that.
