I love an open country.
Your first image has a slanted horizon, though.
And the subject matter aside from the barbed wire fence is somehwhat bland so there's not clear interesting subject to look at in the image, but wait a few months and the crops will give you a more glorious scene to capture.

One thing I can suggest to attract interest in the viewer is, for a scene like this, to consider the barbed wire fence a secondary (complementary) subject rather than a primary one. This implores you to find an interesting subject to place within the field for the eye to hone in on and be complemented by a fine scene basking in pleasant afternoon sun or dusky sky colours.

A previous shot of mine in similar circumstances may show you visually what I'm trying to say - not to imply that this is any standard to compare to, but perhaps an example of how a clear subject can add interest to the image:



Then again, if you're going to make a fence the primary subject, it does need a dramatic backdrop to make a high impact image - another ordinary example may be this:



Hope this helps.
