Oh man. Why didn't you move in about 7 or 8 steps closer? You have a decent subject item here, but the foreground grass is really taking away from the overall impact of the presentation. Another option/choice would have been to use a split ND filter upside down to control the light on the grass (polarizer instead perhaps?). Lots of light reflecting off those grass blades. Just some observations. Good luck!

It's okay.

Comp does not really seem to work. I'd suggest cutting off a lot of the grass and a bit of the treetops.

There's too much light and shadow here for me. The best lit part of the picture is the grass.

I think you could have improved this by cropping of the bright grass in the foreground

Very nice.

i think this would have a better overall effect if it was cropped in a little more (my opinion)...but still a good shot.

There's too much over exposed foreground.

Nice place. I think that composition could have been improved. The grass in the foreground takes too much space in the image.

I like the composition, but the foreground is very light. Think it would be nice is you cropped away the foreground and let the trees and the shadows frame your photo.
