Dew on a Pennsylvania Wheat Field

I snapped both of these pictures of a Pennsylvania summer wheat field on an early morning walk last week near Carlisle. But, I can't decide which one I like the best. NOTE: You should be able to click on the pictures to see them enlarged.

The first photo highlights details in the wheat. The beads of clear dew sparkle on the fresh, green wheat reaching toward the morning sky. The farm is fuzzy in the background, but that dew is so clear and in focus. Inspiring.

The second photo captures the landscape a bit better. The farm is in clear focus in the background, freshly plowed earth softens the composition, but the details in the field of wheat aren't quite as engaging.

Which picture draws your attention the best?

  1. Great photos Cheryl! While I like the dew on the first image, I love the composition much more on the second!
