Nice images David! I like the perspective of #1 (the angle on the bales is cool, where you can see the oppositional lines of the rolled hay on the side vs end) and HDR colors of #2

Very nice with beautiful light. I would keep this in my pocket and capture it again with a dramatic sky.

Lovely !

I like the second one more because of the bale in the distance, I think.

Reminds of me of a summer long ago when I had a job helping save the hay, down in Kilkenny.

Bales were MUCH smaller then - you could lift them by the baling wire and throw them up on the trailer.

Happy days

I to like both pics but for me I like the one with 2 bales give me more sense of the field. Thanks Rodrick for reminding me of the days on the farm bring in the Hay. I haven't thought about that in a long time.
