Very nice.  If it was me (and if it was possible), I would have moved forward a few feet to remove the edge of the field from the foreground.  Gives a subconscious feel that the 'amber waves of grain' continue past the photographer and on and on...

Very nice. Perhaps crop out the dark area in the foreground. I found the break in continuity distracting from the beautiful skies.

I thought the foreground provided a parenthesis. Nice subject, but it looks a little muddy on my monitor. Would a gentle curve applied to the bottom half help?

At the risk of sounding like a wilful contrarian I liked the darker green at the bottom of the photo. It made for an interesting colour composition. ( Compare a cropped and uncropped version of the image while standing back and squinting or while it's reduced on your monitor - go on try it...).

Very nice.

PS ( Geek Alert ). I noticed that the image had a Prophoto RGB profile - wouldn't sRGB look better for web use? ( It looked OK on my monitor though ).

Don't crop it. It works better as is.

Ahem, crap, that's explains the look. Downloaded and opened it up and it looks vastly different. Thanks. Ok, so keep the foreground.

I love the front row of light grains in contrast to the darker green foreground behind them. I'd mask off and brighten the farm buildings a bit and I'd lower the clouds about 5% to be a bit closer to the farm. I'd also boost the contrast a bit of the sun beams slanting down from right to left under the clouds although they may print okay as is depending on the printing method.
