Default Poor composition/balance rejection - too much rape?

May I have some guidance with this one please?

Is it just a case of just too much oil seed rape and not enough sky? (the sky's not very interesting actually)

or is the whole idea not worth pursuing?

thanks

andy

Yeah mate, you need a little less oil seed ... the colours are loud and very distracting.

Try a telephoto from the same location, perhaps just a bit lower, and crop out the building and large shrubberyish mass on the right.

Crop from the bush right, and maybe some from the left to. Just to much dead air on the sides of your shot, top and bottom will take care of its self in PS.
