seems a bit too contrasty ...

I think it might have looked better in a sepia tone, to add to the old age.

Great color tone. I know the subject needs to include some foreground earth, but, IMO, the image would be improved by cropping up from the bottom just a bit, to avoid having the bold line between the plowed eartha and the background fall so exactly in the center of the image. Stepping back a few feet to get more space on both vertical sides would also help, I think, to show the amount of work that needs to be done. But those are nits, it;'s avery nice shot - Overall a 6 from me.

fantastic image although it seems a bit pixelated - nicely done.

Nice idea, but the grain seems excessive, even for what I think you may have been trying to accomplish.
