Default DEAD CORN

While taking photos at a location and this field of dead corn was beside me!

Shot HDR and processed to have that 'dead' feel to it.

No. 1 is really nice not only at conveying the color and contrast treatment performed on all of the images, but also the looming withered stalks - the low perspective really works well. Nice image, with a lonely, melancholy feel. Nos. 2 and 3 don't accomplish this as well as 1.

Thank you.

Ya, I was just walking past with no plans of taking pictures. Then I looked over and saw the corn.

DEAD CORN sounds like a metal band. Nice work, love the first one.

HAHAH never thought of that. As long as you spell it with a "c" and not a "k" I think it would work LOL.

Well, when you get down to it, the kernals are quite alive, it's just the stalks and husks that are dead.

Heavy metal/horror show feeling, esp. no. 1 with the distorted perspective.
Really, you felt creeped out walking out there?
Interesting...
Thanks for sharing.

You really have the eye for great images. Excellent quality as always.
I thought they removed everything after the harvest? Or maybe it's leftover for the birds
