This is my first post in a looong time and, hopefully my photography has improved in the intervening period. But I'll let you decide. I still consider myself a novice in photography.
This is just a scene of some stubble with lead in lines and an interesting sky. Hopefully I'll get some hints on how this could be improved, or what I did wrong.

This is a very fine image. The vertical format is great showing the depth of the scene. The low POV is nice allowing us good close up sharpness in the foreground. The shot has excellent sharpness and DOF. The lighting and colors are great here as well.

Geez, over three years! That is a long time to be absent from TE - especially for us total addicts!! Anyway, welcome back and, judging by this picture, I look forward to seeing many more from you!
This is a delightful photograph and one of the first of the annual "straw bale" pictures which we look forward to seeing at this time of year onwards. The light and colours are wonderful, your composition is good and the details and sharpness are excellent.
Now, you ask for advice. I'm the last person on the planet qualified to dish out advice, but your asking for it meant that I suddenly had an irresistible urge to do a workshop for you! So that's what I've done and I hope you don't mind. I've written what I've done together with the workshop image, so see what you think.
But, as I say, this is a delightful photograph as it stands and any playing around with it by myself or others is just a matter of taste.
P.S. Just one tiny bit of advice - not about photography, but about TE. By and large, people here like to receive comments and critiques on their pictures - that's only natural, especially if the critique is praise. But many people will not write critiques on photographs from photographers who do not write critiques themselves. That, I suppose, is understandable and people do like a bit of "to and fro" comments and discussion and that can often be very helpful. I'm not at all advocating the "backslapping" which a very small number of members do - i.e. writing glowing critiques on appalling photographs just to receive praise yourself - but having a good look at some others' pictures and trying to write some meaningful critiques will certainly attract people to look at yours and reciprocate. And the advice from others can often be very helpful indeed - I've learned a heck of a lot from others on this site during my eight years here - I just wish I had managed to put all that advice into practice!
