Wonderful contrast between the golden wheat and brooding sky, and some useful height given to the composition by the hedgebank on the right. Very nicely done, excellent moody image.

The composition is tremendously effective. The two principal leading lines meet at pretty much the darkest area of the storm cloud. Lovely light on the foreground which you have used well.

There's a real ominous feeling in that sky. I think the colour of the barley and hedge row make the oncoming storm cloud more striking! Great Photo!
