A remake of a shot I posted the other day. It scored reasonably well but was criticised on a view points. I've addressed all points, so see if the image scores any higher now!

I like this photo very much. IMO it is better than previous version. Sharpness is good, colors are great and I like the look of a flowers crowdy meadow. Uniform cloudy sky helps the flowers to stand out even more.

I think this particular crop is a bit better than the other version, but still I believe the border detracts from the image and make it look brighter than it really is. Try looking at it with a much darker border, or no border at all. Still, I think it remains too busy. Can you try reshooting it?

Beautiful photo with good details and colors. I prefer seeing less sky, the white part has a lot of importance in the photo and is relaxing. Regards. Mario

Hello Robert -- unfortunately i missed the other version but looked it up now and, I like it more than this one, which IMHO is too bright and the the clouds lacking the detail which showed before. But format here is better, though I'd still cut, on the left end, past the plants sticking up above the rest. But, of course, this is a beautiful image. regards - Adam
