General
impression
Jodeigh, overall you did a good job with a difficult subject. The dense vegetation makes makes for a difficult composition and you were right to focus in tightly on the tractor the way you did. I

A good subject but a difficult presentation. The old tractor languishing in the overgrown vegetation has a nice nostalgic feel to it.
8/10
Composition
& perspective
This is a difficult composition. There are a lot of competing elements and the viewer's eye is not sure where to go. All of the vegetation tends to overwhelm the tractor. I like the way you placed the tractor at an angle in the frame. It leads the viewer's eye to the structure in the background which is partially obscured by the vegetation. The exhaust stack of the tractor divides the frame in the middle.

Lighting
Overall, the lighting is a bit flat which gives the overall image a somewhat cold feeling. The photo appears to have been taken on an overcast winter day.

Focus
It's hard to judge focus on these small photo's but the focus appears to be good from front to back.

How to improve your photo
1.
Try shortening the depth of field so that the background is out of focus. This would lead to less vegetation competing for the viewer's eye and would simplify the composition.
2.
The image could benefit from more contrast. Try the same photo on a sunny or partially cloudy day Or add some contrast with an image editing program such as Photoshop.
3.
Try varying the perspective a bit so that the exhaust stack on the tractor is not in the middle of the frame.

As an award winning black and white fine-art photographer, I am constantly amazed at how shadow and light can come together to evoke a particular feeling from the viewer. The drama of an Ansel Adams landscape or an Edward Weston still life is even more amazing when you consider how photography ...
