This isn't just a landscape, I really think it portrays earth well. Lovely colors, I like the subtle green in the background and beginning to sprout in the foreground.

The underlying idea is good but I think that more could've been done with it. Personally, I'd try to shoot through the wires so as to not only get the fence out of the frame but also get a much lower shooting angle and emphasize the texture, lines and forms on the soil.

The colour of the earth here is really quite special. Lovely shot.

I REALLY love the color and line in this photo except for the big black fence post, it doesn't work for me in this photo, i love the plainness and simplicity mixed with pretty intricate detail, i would probably clone out the post because cropping would get rid of the amazing texture in the clouds to the left

beautiful sky, nice composition but i would like to see more detail in the fence post in the foreground, in my opinion it is a little too dark to add any real value to the scene
