Amazing how you made dirt so beautiful. The rich tones, and beautiful lighting and composition make this a work of art.

Beautiful shot. The landscape would have been incredible even without those furrows: the trees are so well composed and finely textured.

But the furrows create such and incredible band of textured colour - it elevates the shot to absolutely amazing.
I can't believe this didn't get voted higher.

One of my faves.

I can only think that maybe people wanted more contrast, slightly more dynamic lighting (seems to be quite popular on here).

I like the tone though - it gives it a clean, wholesome country feel.

Nice rhythm here and the evening (morning?) sun creates a nice shadow effect as well.

Love this picture, but it makes me homesick.

You shot this at a great time and captured the shadows perfectly to accentuate the furrows. I think a square crop and slightly adjusting the horizon in pp would improve this compositionally.

I long for bluer skies.

Photo loks boring at first but then upon a closer look becomes very interesting. The kind of sublety that impresses me

The horizon is a little tilted but overall very nice idea and picture. I also like the title.

One of the best shots in this challenge. Even in thumbnail, it was outstanding.

Seems like it needs something else... like a tractor, or someone doing something in the field.
