Photograph of the Week: The Beanfield in Winter

Mid January In The Bean field.  Posted to flickr March 6, 2016

This was taken back in mid-January, just prior to the harvest of these soybeans.  A sky filled with  puffy white clouds greeted the late afternoon  sun bringing a golden hue to the field.  Actually, the blue tones from the sky were very much in evident throughout the frame so I added an 812 warming filter to, well, warm things up a bit.  It took care of the blue cast.  The 812 has been around almost forever.  I used it frequently in the film days seeking to warm up Kodak Ektachrome slide film which often had a rather chilly look to it.  Perhaps it was because Kodachrome was so incredibly vivid and saturated with color that everything else paled.  The 812 juiced it up.  I’m quite sure Tiffen still makes it. Thanks for the look and have a great week ahead.
