"Feeding time" is an great addition into the Country Life challenge. The image is so full it is bound to grab peoples attention. I think the shots biggest disadvantage is its size, unfortunately in this contest size does matter. I think a lot of people really do just lower their score based on if the size was to small.

The image itself is very interesting. I think using the fence as a frame works, you might try to make it a little more level. Also step away from the shot just a little, I understand that maybe if you stepped back another foot you might loose the tight boarder and end up with some empty space which I wouldn't recommend. It just seems like it needs a little more balance. The deep color of the horse is an excellent contrast between the snow and him/her. Good work.

Like the way the fence has been composed to frame the horse. I would just crop the bottom out more to balance off with the top. The other thing that doesn't help is the size of this image which diminishes the impact of his eyes even though they seem to be the main subject here. Go to the DPC tutorial to learn how to resize for this site.

great work...should have saved it at 640 wide as this is too small 7

This picture is very small and doesn't take advantage of the shot you have taken. Try maximising pictures to 640 :)
