Really odd shot in the sense that I haven't come across this style before. The front stalk so thin yet focused, the rear stalks lost in the grain of the background. To be fair I cannot place this shot. Is it abstract? A mistake? Deliberate PP? Im not marking low at all, a 6 at least.

Camera pointed at sun (the obvious, no-brainer, cliche shot) with no redeeming qualities: 1

Cool, blocky colors instead of smooth gradient: + 1

Cool sumi-e look: +5

Total score: 7

I really like the texture that the noise makes here. I think that cropping the bottom at the distracting horizontal line would greatly improve your score, IMO. When I scroll the photo down to where I can't see this line, it seems to not only take away the distraction, but it improves the composition.

Minimalistic and simple. Grainy look works ok and is helped by the out of focus blade of grass.
