    Sorry, neither one. I think I would like it somewhere in between with a bit more contrast

    I like the second one more. I've worked in the fields and my memories of such scenes are of dry, dusty earth below with the sun baking the stubble. The light is intense, causing workers to develop wrinkles about the eyes and on the forehead from "sun squint." The second invokes this feeling of heat, bright light and dust. It looks like something Van Gogh could have painted.

    thanks for looking and commenting everyone !! and thats a huge compliment there Actor !! I was kinda going for something along those lines here, like a painting of sorts or a story telling shot, I like how you can interpret many things in this shot, you dont know what she was doing or what she's looking for, and I like the leading lines in the hay too leading the eye back to the hill, thanks again !!

    I like the first for clarity but the second it brings back the my childhood days working on a farm during the holidays and just like Actor says It's dry and dusty and very bright on the eyes, well sometimes in Scotland it is.

    i like the first one best too, but i'd try to do something with the dark patch up in the clouds (top right). I dunno what it is - or how to fix it for that matter - but it just kept catching my eye.

    yeah, I'll second that. Reminds me of the field that was (accidentally) set on fire by a load of steam engines one year.....:lol:
