    Le taureau ne te dérangeait pas ce jour là. 🙂 I like the one with the bull and cows, but then I’m partial to cattle. 🙂 The one of the fence fading into the midst is gorgeous. The fact that the near fence post is really sharp is probably key. I’d be inclined to take out the spot of lens flaring just to the north of the sun. It would be nice to have more clouds in the sky, but since there is only that thin wisp of one again in the north, I would try removing it too and see if I like it better. It’s almost distracting being the only one.

    Way to capture farmland! The golden hours and the times around sunrise and sunset will transform any landscape!

    I like the blue color of the sky in DSC_4854-1280×853.jpg more than in DSC_4849-1280×853.jpg. If that was a post processing edit, do it to both.

    The cows make a great foreground. I suggest waiting or moving for more distinct silhouettes. So, for example waiting until the bull on the left turned to look forward, or the three cows on the right separated a little more so you could distinguish them as three distinct objects.

    In both shots, there’s a lot of sky. While the sky is colorful, perhaps less sky and more foreground texture could improve the shot. I’d have to experiment to see which I liked better!

    Thanks for the counsels Frazer Family and James, I will take time to edit them. I also wish the cows would be looking at me, but I didn’t want to get their attentions too much with the bull standing there:)

    That takes some dedication to be outside taking pictures of the sunrise at 5:00 in the morning!

    Looking directly towards the sunrise, that’s some extreme contrast to deal with. I know the feeling! You did a great job in post, editing it in such a way that there’s not a noticeable gradient between the extremely bright sky and extremely dark foreground. Depending on what type of camera you are using, it is possible to help with these kind of situations with the use of a Graduated ND Filter. Also, photo blending (even possible from one exposure) is possible in programs like Photoshop.

    In terms of composition, the low angle is great. Try looking for something of distinct shape to use in the foreground, like I tried to do in this shot, to add a little more interest.
