With or without the sky? Thoughts on other aspects welcome, too.

Without for me. Not very attractive sky.

Same here. All of the focus of the photo is on the farm/fields anyways, so just get rid of the sky. If there were big storm clouds or something interesting there then it might work, but as-is, less is more.

Without sky, it'll add much more to the landscape

the only thing better about the sky included version is that the watermark is less intrusive :-)

deep greens and blues are the colors I choose ...

I think I agree with everyone here. The sky version leaves my eye wandering a bit. In the cropped pano version, my eye goes directly to the main subject.

I could see the full sky version being useful for something like a letter or brochure, where the bottom edge of the page has the farm scene and it fades to sky above for text. But, as a photo hanging on the wall, not so much. Something like this...

I agree .....but ...you could always bring the sky out more also. There is a potentiail in the sky I think because I do see clouds and some blue. Similar situation here but I am sure you can do better. There is not enough interest without the sky for me.

We do know that the watermark would not be on any final version or print, right?

It seems like a lot of people don't understand that you don't print the watermark. :lol:

It seems like a lot of people don't understand the need for a large watermark on top of a low res image posted for critique. :)
