Like the way that the sun has broken through the clouds to highlight the focus of the scene. I'm not sure about the gate and fences in the bottom left on the picture though. Crop them out, frame the shot without them in and include more mountain?

Thanks for your interesting comment, I guess I had a choice of two compositions in this position- (a) keep the image tight with no sky, as I have here, and use the gate as an entry point at the bottom left corner, or (b) crop off the gate/fence and include some sky. I preferred the former because I liked the cosiness/ containment of the cottages location- I felt including some sky would have "leaked" this cosiness out, if you catch my drift! (It was a grey and featureless sky anyway) Thanks again, I appreciate the feedback.

the road taking you from one corner of the frame to the other makes it very interesting

The gate and fences work for me as an entry point - the bank of grass in the foreground leads the eye down to the gate. The eye is then taken along the road and onto the cottage resulting in good movement.

I like the way you are led into the picture along the tiny road and the patch of sunlight on the farm. Well done.

I like the light on just part of the scene. Well composed, too. Good job!
