Northern California has fields of these yellow mustard flowers in bloom and I had a chance yesterday to capture this pretty lady in the middle of them. Lighting is very late afternoon sun with a gold reflector bouncing light back in.

Nice shots but I'm bothered by the tilts in the first 3, and your Post Processing is doing a number on sharpness in the face. The last shot is nice, but not loving the glow.

Great work Roger! I love # 4 as well. What did you use for glass on these shots?

Very nice. I really like the way her red/white dress peeks through the yellow and green foilage. Good call on dress color!

number 3 is your best shot. The contrast and saturation on the first 2 are too strong for my liking and the glow on the 4th is much.

Love #4. You had an assistant then for the reflector or did you just set it down?

Lucky for you, and the model, no allergies. I'm allergic to grass (really), though it's never stopped me from golfing ;) Just one more thing to consider, the grass type, though when shooting in a field I guess.

They seem a bit soft, OOF, especially #1.
