The weather was not so conducive WRT lighting, but just tried this composition with a 10 stop ND to get some cloud movement. I'm not too sure about the foreground though, probably needed some some texture or might have worked cropped. I tried the square format as well, but looks like this the max I can come up with. Happy to open to suggestions, of course.

I do like this one. Only the halo around the tree disturbs a bit. Think you've got to do some serious masking to lessen the halo.
I like the grey gloomy mood of the picture.

I don't have a problem with the halo as it sort of fits the mood. But, I'd crop just a bit of the foreground, coincidentally just above the watermark.

Itís a nice pic. I never would have thought to do such a long exposure of a field, fearing that even the gentlest of breeze would have blurred the grass a lot.

Nice composition, but I also find the halo around the tree too distracting

Nice composition and subject matter. The texture on the grass is fine, but the image seems a little flat and lacking in contrast. It looks as if all(or most) of your tonal values fall in Zone VI which is 18% grey ?
