You're doing well with your landscapes Annette -
Lovely loop in f/g and good perspective with ploughed field -
could the furrows be burned in a bit more?
What a fantastic sky - if it didn't look so natural I'd think you'd painted it!

Lovely light and depth enhancing comp; it's so textural and contrasty I'd be tempted to try a mono conversion since to my eye colour is not important here (and blue is the only obvious colour too), going mono may help simplify and therefore enhance the impact of the clouds and the furrows?
