Driving along rural Kansas roads this time of year typically means you’ll start seeing these…everywhere. Especially if you have a commute you do everyday, you’ll be used to seeing large fields of tall grass and then all the sudden….gone. And replaced by large, round, plastic-covered haybales.
This photo was taken just south of Lecompton, KS, on a bright afternoon. After some basic color correction in Lightroom, I drove it through Topaz Labs’ Clarity plug-in and removed some detail. I did this in anticipation of the next step, running it through Topaz Labs’ Impression plug-in to give it an artsy feel. This time, I used a modified version of the Da Vinci pencil preset. I finished it off with a little cross processing. It’s fun to take photos, but it’s a blast to make photos!
This image was shot using the Sony α6000 mirrorless camera with a Sony power-zoom kit 16-50mm lens. Click the links to check them out on Amazon (affiliate links-a small portion of any sales goes to maintain the website).
Day 4 of #MyJune30
This image was taken just outside of Lecompton, KS. I really like the texture in the gate as well as the various leading lines going to the middle of the photo. To me, this image represents the beginning of summer. Enjoy it! This concludes day four of my 30 day photo challenge.
