The composition caused me a lot of headaches. The closer I got to the end, the more I saw that it just wasn't working. I started to analyze what was wrong and I came to the conclusion that the main problem was the configuration of the composition. There were a lot of duplicated straight lines, such as the horizon line and electricity cables; the repeating, straight power lines; the vertical line of the border of the shot and the vertical column at its edge, and, also, the lines of the field itself. It was necessary to break them up, to bring a counterbalance (Fig.09 - 10).

Virgin Soil

I selected several photos that most reflected how I wanted the grass in the field to look (Fig.11).


For modeling the vegetation I used a lot of photos that had been taken by me and my wife while we were walking through the fields in late autumn. I brought some of the plants back to my house so I could take more comfortable pictures, which further helped in the work.

You would be great Farming-Simulator mods creator. And this tractor is awesome! Maybe you can sell tractors model? I think it would be the best soviet union times mod. :)
