Fence is actually ruining it for me. Seems it's detracting from the other layers in the shot.

I really like it. The only thing I would consider is doing more accentuating of the highlights and shadows in the field in the background. And maybe darken the immediate foreground a tad.

i.e. lots of layers with curves, levels and appropriate blending modes and masks would really help the distant part of the scene pop.

This is an example of what I am talking about (although it is taking it to extremes for many non-professionals).

I think the pic is fine and I don't necessarily agree with the 'lose the fence'.....

Although, if the fence was not there it'd be a nice 'naturescape' too.......

What woulda really made the pic is if some sort of farm-life or wildlife was fore of the fence, or on the fence...
Of course, I know you might have thought of that already, and these things are beyond our control..... I think

My first thought was it has a good Edgar Martins feel, a study of a space. And the fence is critical. Good idea. I would say the bush on the right is a more discordant element. I like the look with that side cropped. Thanks.

I like it and with the fence, but hey, I am not an expert. I agree that crooked old fence posts would add, but that would take a decade :) !!

I like the linear look of the fence line. Though a question for experts; for my curiosity and not to criticize the shot because it may not have been possible.. . , but would you like the fence better if it came in at an angle, say close to far with the fence dissapearing in the distance ?
