I was able to capture this photograph tonight, and while I love how it turned out, I wondered if everyone thinks the motion blur of the wheat adds or detracts from the photo. Assuming I can get a decent sunset again, I wonder if I shouldn't travel back on a non windy night so I can get the wheat in sharp focus, but then again I kinda like it how it is.

Any other c&c is also welcome.

Zim...NICELY done dude! Unique effect drawing the viewer into focus. :) Colors and composition are very well done.

Nice sunset and the barn sets a mood. The movement of the wheat ads an ethereal feeling to the scene-I like it!

I love it with the blurred wheat. Just looks like the horizon is off to me.

I'm going against the grain so far. The motion blur is a little distracting.

Love the colour and the composition, just the wheat closest to the bottom of the picture.

I can feel your pain... I've had many shots where the wind was the only detracting thing from a shot. Many of those, I've shot, re-shot and shot again... trying to capture without the wind.

I do like the shot, and I could got either way on the wind.. but I'd probably prefer the wheat to be still.

beautiful capture.
The blur is good and isn't distracting to me as my eyes go back the the horizon to see the sunset.
Keep the shots coming.

I think the tilted horizon is more distracting.

I've been checking out landscape painting in the style called tonalist, really big in the late 1800's, early 1900's when it was still cool to paint things rather than just splash it on. George Inness was something of an originator. But their thing was limit the detail, blur out some parts and leave others sharp all to suggest numinous energy. I'm glad to see your experiments in blur.

nice shot!
i personally would like to see only a bit of blur, so i would probably crop it closer to the barn. the motion of the stalks near the bottom part of the picture as well as the big empty space on the top part is a bit distracting to me. and i would expose the right side of the barn a tad bit more.

the colors are magical!
