I'm aware of this being a fisheye and the distortion is a fact, but it seems like you could have adjusted your shooting degree to kind of keep the horizon level, at the present it looks way to high on the right. I'm not even sure if that would have worked but the horizon throws this shot off for me. The IR is incredible on the other hand

when looking through the viewfinder I saw the nice curves in front of me, ths is what I wanted. I looked affterwards if it was possible to cerrect the curve in the horizon, but I lost my wnatend curve in front. I also looked if how it's looked like with an even more curved horizon but I did not like that. I have posted a more exteme fishy shot from this tree yesterday.
Thanks for your thougts, I always appreciate them.

I like the composition but the colors make it look extremely cold. Would have liked to see more white grass and golden sky.

For me it was part of the fun to have that cows over there in such a cold landscape. Maybe I go back, no for sure.

If there is a horizon in an image, I go like it to be level.

The horizon in your image is a straight line (not curved), so you could just straighten the image to make the horizon level and keep the curves. Though you would lose some of the image in the straighten/rotate process.

I like it though.

For me I see the main focal point being where the tree and the lines in the crops are close together at the horizon. At that point the horizon is nearly level. That is where my eye is drawn and so I like it.

It is a little too purple (cool) for me, though. I would like it to be warmer. Perhaps that is why I live in the South where we have warmer days and not too much winter.

Anyhow as I am a fisheye lover I like the image and see that the curved horizon is just right.

Really interesting, great potential - I like the lines you wanted a lot.... I even quite like the colour... but for me, definitely not this shot.

Cool shot. I actually like the horizon how it is, straightening it seems like it would throw the tree off kilter. With the horizon at a very slight slope, the image almost looks like it's in motion to me.
