Abstract of field, using lines. Bit too green?

For me its a little too green, nothing really to catch the eye

Well spotted, perhaps a shade too much Sus. Ron.
I like the scene but since the core of the shot is the lovely stone house I would have placed it to the third point of the frame following the rule of thirds to improve the composition. The shades might get stronger using a grad filter, or if you are confident with PS levelling you can try to increase the contrast to produce more impact.
Potentially it's a great shot, I like it, click.
Thanks for comments. I used more contrast than I usually do with this shot (medium rather than linear in PS curves) so maybe I'm just being tame with my contrast...
Mmm, thanks for mods too! Tighter crop is the main thing I think, from looking at them.
...having workewd on many farms, I'd not like to make hay on these steeep fields, tractor would roll over!!
walls and barns are great for these semi-abstract shots (we know they're barns and walls, so it's not totally abstract ).
Here I'd have a think about your composition - you've got these elements...
Quote: tree tops
horizontal wall at the top
vertical wall near the barn
vertical wall near the middle.
so using the usual compositional thoughts... the focal point would be the barn, so that coudl do with being on a 1/3 line, or at least well away from the edge of a frame
the vertical wall on the barn - major element, so but that on a 1/3 - which it would be if the barn was on a 1/3
top wall - maybe get that on the top 1/3 line if possible?
I think you'd need a lower focal length to do that - zoom out a bit
Then the trees.... they're 1/2 in, 1/2 out... maybe loose them, or ctop between the left one and the middle one, the middle one would be on the left 1/3 if you panned across to put the barn on the right 1/3....
that's how I'd look at it anyway - the mind of a crazed architectural Tog at work
Arggh! You've gone 1/3 crazy on me! Mind boggling with all that restructuring. Why can't farmers just build with 1/3 in mind??!
Seriously, thanks for the detailed review. I have a couple of other shots covering slightly different areas that I was going to chuck... I'll have another look at them to see if any fulfil that idea!
Nice shot, I dont agree that this needs a thirds composition. The position of the hose is fine, what slightly spoils it are the trees which are an unwanted distraction and the inconsistent and, in areas, oversaturated greens. Cropping and converting to black and white are obvious solutions to these problems as I have show in my edit (similar to another members!) This scene has massive potential, but I can see it working better in the winter when colour might be a viable option.
