I thought cows sat when it was supposed to rain? Anyway, I like the asymmetrical balance in the photo because it directs my eyes to the right side.

I would have moved over slightly so the photo was more balanced and there were cows on the whole ground.

what a great capture, but IMO opinion you could have made the sky a little more dramatic and brought the cattle out more.

nice pastoral scene, but it might have been stronger had you cropped a bit off the top and the left and really let the sky and the cows be the focus.

The cows are almost a little camo. Too bad they couldn't stand out just a little more. Sky is good. Balance between sky and ground seem appropriate for the occasion.

This is probably just because of location, but I wish January looked like this here. It's usually replaced with about 5 feet of snow and boring smooth overcast skies. I like the dynamics in the clouds, though I think they could be doing more... not like that is in your control though. The livestock is barely hanging onto the frame... but that doesn't really bother me too much. I would really like to have seen something breaking the horizon line into the sky because they are really two separate elements here. There is a hint of something in the background but it is easily dismissed.

Very nice clouds. I'd be tempted to make the foreground just a tad brighter. (I know the storm's coming in, but it's a wonderful foreground and it seems to disappear.

Quite a storm! I wish the cattle (?) in the foreground had been lightened a bit; they are barely visible.

seems like you are choosing to big of an area...if you would have cropped out the field to the left that would have been enough...keeping the cows as the focal point...
