Shot this at F5, 1/400 ISO 200 just looking for feedback.

Maybe a wider lens? The front water feels cut off in the middle.

The colours of the grass here are lovely.

But I'm just not sure that there's much in this picture to hold the interest. The run-in shed to the left is not really a feature, nor should it be because it's not that interesting a building. Then there's the expanse of grass and a glimpse of water. Maybe if there were storm clouds coming it might add visual interest.

Bambi hit this perfectly imo.
For a shot like this to make us go wow there needs to be interesting stuff in the foreground background and midground...at least 2 out of three.
To make the stuff interesting, you need great light and/or great colour and/or great drama etc. The colour in the grass is very nice but it's not strong enough to carry the image. Hope that helps - Marko
