I like the idea of this challenge and I think we should have them more often. Although this isn't photoshopped to look "nicer", this is exactly what I saw in fromt of me. There was haze/fog and it was still a bit dark as the sun was still coming up. I wish the callenge was not a speed challenge (I'm working 12 hr night shifts this week). This feild is right across the street from my house - so I didn't lose too much sleep getting the shot! :)

Greetings from the Critique Club

Straight from the Camera. Dark. Um.

You have an excellent composition here and lovely colors as well. (And I'm a sucker for those rolled haybales that seem to flow so nicely into the countryside)

A Critique Club member is supposed to suggest ways to improve your image, and yes, I caught that note that you work 12-hour shifts.

But still, it's the lighting that needs to be improved for this image to work perfectly. Many photographers wait hours for that perfect moment that will make their image The Perfect One. So without post-processing and without the ability to wait for the perfect moment, well, you did pretty darn well with this very nice image.

I'd love to see you revisit this image someday in the right light. You'll have a winner, for sure. (And hey, it's right across the street!)

Very nice! Little dark, can't wait to see this with some processing! The dark kinda works though... Maybe you should leave it this way...

I really like the hazy effect here. It adds to a nice comp and a DOF that draws you in. Looks like you picked a perfect time of day to take this. Nice job.
