Photographer's Note

Another Autumn scene ,the cutting of Maize for cattle feed over winter, quiet a new thing in the UK but becoming more common sight(see Lizard-Ladys maize mazes). the whole plant is cut off at ground level leaves cobs and all are chopped up, taken back to the farm where it is stored in very tightly packed pit called a clamp where it stays edible because of the lack of air and a little fermentation till wanted in the middle of winter.
open and crop to 29.5 X 14 @600dpi
check levels
saturation +8 &lightness +3
brightness +3 & contrast +6
use selective colour set on green and bost the yellow +6 & black +13 to improve the overal greens in the pic as they seemed a little flat, had a circular poloriser fitted for this shot as some of the attemps had a lot of sky in them.
