I actually like the hay one...but the DOF is whats killing you. The
detail on the bail in the foreground is distracting. The motion blur
on the falling hay is good. Maybe if you had framed it portrait
style. Cut the bail out... like this crop.
Dont be afraid to turn the camera sideways. the vertical lines of the building and falling hay contrasted with the bail in the bottom left.
Otherwise. I like #1 alot. Your slow shutter of the stream is really nice too. The light looked like it was perfect. its hard to do those without getting harsh shadows and blown out space. You look like you know what you are doing. Just keep shooting.
process is sooo hot right now
