I just processed this image and I need someone to critique it. I am more interested in processing critique than composition but that is welcomed as well.
Before:

After:

Thanks

I think you did a great job with the processing. It looks nice and natural which I prefer. Isn't it amazing what can be done. You've taken a nice but not real eyecathing shot and made it into something. Only one comment would be to see if you can get rid of a little of the yellow in the grass. the sky color is gorgeous

Not much more I can add here. I might crop it in for a little more of a "panorama view" taking out a little more of a bottom.. but that's more of an artistic decision. I might also get rid of the bank of trees on the far left.

But, to repeat Tuckersmom.. you've done a pretty bang-up job on a photo that I'd probably not look at twice in my own folder. (But then, I'm not much of a landscapist)

Fantastic. I think you did a wonderful job.

thanks a lot. I actually thought the grass might be too green already as the grass in reality was almost completly yellow from what I remember. I might try making it green just to see the effect.

I think the processing is wonderful...and I have been having difficulties at that as well....and, before I go to the composition, I am ONLY A BIGGINER>>>, now...I think the sky way overpowers the earth...in my OPPINION...I might have been better to shoot a bit more of the trees...or none of them...as when I look at this photo...mine eyes are drawn to the trees and not the sky.... but again...I am only a beginner and this is only mine oppinion.... :)

My thoughts exactly. Great job!

i think you did a GOOD WORK HERE SPECIALLY IN THE SKY. but the for ground, i mean the grass seems a little flat. maybe a little dodge and burn there can do the trick

Great color and post-processing job, if you get a chance critique my two photos as well.
