Well, Lincoln would be more accurate. This was the very first hay bale that I had ever seen in my life so I naturally had to shoot it. We visited Nebraska in the peak of the summer season so I wanted my processing style here to reflect the ridiculous humidity we experienced. Overall, this rural area of Nebraska really is charming and beautiful. Oh, and it has lots of corn.

In terms of processing
I applied a modified version of the Dirty Bird vintage effect as well as my favorite Rice Paper Light paper texture overlay in Perfect Effects 4 by onOne Software.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3.
