A lovely subject. Focus and DOF are good and I like the plain blue sky which provides a neutral back-drop. Possible suggestion is that the farmer and his horses are placed off centre to the right, to draw your eye into the picture more and improve composition?

Workshop looks great Laurita! It's only personal opinion at the end of the day, but I do love it when a photo 'draws you into it' using skylines, coastlines, shapes, horizons etc. I think it keeps your eyes moving and is the difference between a snapshot and an actual 'photograph' that tells a story about the subject as you move through it. By putting the plough (sorry, UK spelling v's USA!) off centre, the eye is drawn immediately to it, but then follows either where the farmer is going, or if it was to the right, where he has been. Again, in my opinion, this adds that axtra element. I quite liked the muted colours of the original, so I would be tempted to keep them. Anyway, thanks for the photo and keep contributing!
