Very nice image. I love the implied S curve covered by the flowers. The sky is fantastic. The colors work well together. My only comment involves o few branches that appear to be growing out of the ridgeline and I find them a bit distracting.   Posted: 06/05/2021 15:16:05

Beautiful image and dramatic sky. Love this shot and I would crop a bit sky which is larger in proportion of the rest of image.   Posted: 06/06/2021 12:11:13

I like the S-curve leading into the frame. I only wish it were a bit longer. Seems more like a stub than a trail. The branches that Paul refers to aren't a real problem for me. I don't know how you could remove them without the plants looking like they'd been hit by a shrub trimmer. I also like the open sky that features the wispy clouds. The colors are wonderful. I love the array of yellows, browns, blues and whites.   Posted: 06/07/2021 13:53:23

This is a lovely image, John, and I agree with all the positives that have already been stated.

For me, the real show-stopper is the mid-ground where you get the layers of green and yellow. To emphasize that you might try cropping in a little from the left and just a bit of sky (I'd keep the lower part of the wispy clouds.).   Posted: 06/07/2021 15:56:52
