I went back the next day just to see if I could do better with the focusing in this shot.  Although the sky had become overcast and was nowhere near as pretty as the previous day, it was still worthwhile to go out and try again.  This time I put the camera on AF-C and centered the focus point in the viewfinder.  I then centered the well pump in the viewfinder, then moved my camera to the left until I got it composed the way I like.  The focus point followed the well pump to the right and it came out nice and sharp.  Another lesson learned!

On a personal note, I was surprised at how well this shot came out.  The sky was ugly and overcast, and I expected the same from the photo.  As it turned out, the silhouette still provided some interest!  Can't wait to get some color and clouds over these field again!
