Hey Dale,
I've never been there in the summer!!! This is very nicely composed with the flowers leading the viewer through the frame. I do think you may want to lessen the brightness and increase some of the contrasts.....making the greens darker a bit and adding some extra depth to the FG area. Still a very nice image all around.

Hi Robert, Agree with Roman regarding the contrast and brightness tweaks. Good comp with pleasing color throughout.

The lower contrast version works much better. I like the strong triangular lines in the image adding great depth as it draws the eye from the FG flowers to the BG peaks and sky. Well done.

Lovely composition. Liked the original version more though the difference is only subtle.
