Lovely flower colors Morkel and I like that a shadow has come over some of the flowers.

I'm thinking that a 2 to 1 aspect ratio would be nice, with the crop just above the bright white clouds.

Hi Morkel,

Love the field of colour and the sky. I think the image would be stronger with a focal point however.. Maybe you could have picked on a single flower and gone in real close? Not sure how close you could have focused with that lens...

I think what you've demonstrated is the vastness of the field of flowers and the brilliant colors. You could focus on one, but I think that would weaken the overall message.

Hi Morkel, Love the burst of colors in the image and the swept of the field, I would also crop some off the top taking the horizon to the upper 1/3 of the frame giving the field a more prominent position in the frame.

Hi Morkel, this is another lovely Cosmos scene to add to your already lovely collection. This makes me jealous as I can barely keep them in my garden here and they seem to be common weeds there :S3:
