Light and Oats

This year's crop in the dog walking field is oats. With the sun low in the sky, and from the right angle, the field is full of points of light. It's quite a different effect to the usual wheat or barley. So time to experiment with pointillism. Here are some first attempts with K3 + DA55-300mm. Fingers crossed that the weather will allow another attempt or two before there is much change.

Thoughts, comments etc. welcome as usual.

Like the effect of the band of focus in no.2 but no.3 stands out as the shot with most impact to me

Not normally a big fan of pointillism, but I do like no.3.
No.2 is interesting because I think you would normally expect the in focus area to to go across an image parallel to the sensor, not move deeper into the scene which is the effect here.

Thanks folks. The weather has not cooperated over the last few days so there probably won't be any more of these this year. I was hoping to see what the DA*300mm could do with points of light. Oh well... .

jvs - The sloping plane of focus is due to undulations in the field. The ground falls away behind the plane of focus, so you're not seeing what lies immediately behind. Similarly with No. 3, the background is actually the next field. If the farmer grows the right crop, there are interesting opportunities in just the one field.
