    Bad
    Sun doesnt have much "character". Its just a bright yellow ball (ie no stars).
    Clouds overexposed.

    Good
    I like the POV. Low and wide.
    Clouds have character (but too bright).
    Yellow wheat (?), green grass and tree branch works well together.

    Overall
    I like it. Conveys a good feeling of "being there". The overexposed clouds are a bigger problem than the sun though.

    This pic motivates me to try something similar.

    composition is good, but bit too contrasty. it appears to be somewhat overexposed, i think it could also work better under lower saturation.

    shooting into the sun is hard to pull off well, there really isn't much to draw attention in this case except that it's blowing everything out around it. if there was some sort of light rays or even lens flare would have made it more interesting

    Not bad dude, I quite like it. I like the low POV. The only thing I could suggest that's not already hinted at, is a slight crop off the bottom.

    If that was a bigger resolution (1920x1200) that would be my background. BLOODY NICE PHOTO!

    Thanks for your comments guys - I did try to use a grad filter in Lightroom to get rid of some of those blown highlights but I then darkened the edges which didn't look brilliant. I might have to do it with the touch up brush.

    Thanks again,

    Martin
