I always wonder WHY do grasses exert such an attraction?! There's nothing more commomn than grasses...and yet....they delight us, they refresh us and they bring a pleasant accent to photos and paintings alike! Just like in your shot here!

Michael Rawluk from Prince George, Canada

Tall grass is just so inviting. Just walking through is so relaxing. And it was a great place to play when I was a boy.
The shot has a 3D effect with the layers behind.

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

The grasses are at a touching distance. So we are "inside" the picture, inside the landscape and not looking at it from some distant spot.
