The rice fields in Iwakura in the northern part of Kyoto are just beginning to awaken from their winter slumbers.
I really love the geometry and line in this photo GJC!
Also, the reflective surface of the water works really well with those soft colours as a backdrop.

This is both highly graphic with those strong diagonals, and yet not, with those soft colours and reflections Ian mentioned. A very strong composition with hushed undertones (if that makes any sense?).

Wow...great! I was thinking that this may be a wooden floor from the thumbnail.

This is just lovely, simple but effective and I just love the lines. My shot of the day so far!

Beautiful natural graphic art.

I admire the angle you've got here - it allows you to keep those wonderful layer-cake lines at the top without much compromise. Very nice.

What lovely interplay of patterns, colours and textures! The reflections are adding to it... great eye! So delightful to view!:-)

That water is so still it looks like metal or glass! Wonderful composition!

Oh I love those diagonal lines leading my eyes to the stacked layer of colours at the top!

Arkansas is one of the top producers of rice in America. You've captured this field from an exceptional angle.

Love the abstract nature..the color..the pattern and light.

Great "layers" :D The blue, the green - all working well together.
Nicely seen and composed!

Great composition with the lines. Very nice to look at

i like that we see the reflection but not what the reflection is of. the soft reds and whites in the reflection are very beautiful.

excellent - i like the joining of the lines.

Great framing, great composition, and good eye. Never thought rice patties can be this beautiful and inspiring.

Lovely contrasting lines

A beautiful abstract! Strong diagonal lines anchored to the horizontal lines at the top. Muted colors. Reflelction. Just lovely.

I like how the house reflection is carried on in the next image (sometimes it's fun to move backwards through a series of images, it seems!). I like the combination of order and nature too, which I suppose is a good way of looking at agriculture.

Great shot, almost looks like a painting.
