I was trying to find some color on a drab day right after getting the K20. I'd like to get back to this with more light and a smaller aperture.

Impressive stack of firewood! I always associate woodpiles with sunny winter days (don't ask me why, because I don't know), and the extra contrast from bright sunlight, along with a line of snow near the bottom of the frame (or possibly laying on top of the pile) would bring back memories for me. I agree with you that more DOF would be better, there isn't anything gained by isolating the middle of the pile when all the wood looks much the same.

I think a shot like this would benefit with having a strong focal point. If you can find an empty birds nest, it would work perfectly.

Split, stacked wood makes me happy. I don't know why, it just does. I can't bring myself to criticize your photo.

It lacks some dramatic effect - maybe you could boost contrast and sharpness in post for a better effect, also I agree with RGlasel that a deeper DoF would look better.
