Getting ready to put leaves on the trees and some more green plants. Would like to enter this in the local fair. Any suggestion or comments most welcome

I was expecting a bright summer farm scene with yellows & sunlit grass from the thread title.. It almost looks foggy or misty?? Looking at it and the colors , it makes me think of early fall..
Are you using a reference image?

you might look at some Jerry Yarnell videos, or others with farm sunset/sunrise scenes on you tube.. or look at similar images for colors & shadow ideas..

I'm guessing a misty morning? maybe these images will help..

Thank you JMW for your suggestions. I really want a look of early morning fog/mist before the sun burns it off. Maybe when I get some leaves on the trees and a few more flowers it will look more like summer. I do look at a lot of you tube clips and try to learn from them.

I think you are right, more green leaves and such will make it more like summer. The reds and oranges remind me of fall as well. I like how you have the morning sun peeking through the mist in the background.

Much more summery with the leaves on the trees. It's a very nice scene.
