I like the leading line created by the trees starting at the cart and ending at what I take to be a stone silo. Not a fan of the red flare in the center tree or the loss of detail in parts of the tree trunks. Looks like it might have been caused by the sun in the background. In my view the image has a lot of wow factor so I hope you are able to return when the sun is in a different place.   Posted: 09/19/2021 09:39:48

I have to agree with Gary about the bright red spot on the middle tree. It looks like you may have had a hotspot on your lens. It would be fairly easy to tone that down in post.
I like the composition very much and I don't find the lack of detail in the tree trunks to be too much of an issue. It would be a lot of work, but you might try desaturating the blue in the cart, making it more of a neutral gray.   Posted: 09/19/2021 17:38:29

Judy, I see the tell-tale CLIR colors. I do need to get that program and experiment with it. The flare (or hotspot) in the center needs the most attention, of course. Very nice scene. I'd like to see what it looks like in monochrome. I'll give it a try after the weekend.   Posted: 09/24/2021 17:51:39
