Hi Silvio,
Beautiful colorful 'carpets' spread on these fields! Splendid flowers and an agreeable POV. There is a good sense of depth into the perspective. Good light management and a nice tight crop.
Well done,

Hi silvio

Such a soothing mix of wild colours, a place you would like to visit, stay awhile and ponder. tfs

stv ;o))

A good capture of a beautiful carpet of flowers. The flowers appear to be sharp and the photo has a good depth of field.

However, in my humble opinion, and it is only my opinion, I think the levels and/or saturation could have been boosted and some of the fore and background could have been cropped out. Also, and remember, it is only my personal opinion, I think the photo needs a focal point, somewhere for the eye to rest and concentrate on.
I did a workshop, only to test my thoughts. I hope you dont

I agree with Robert over the issue of cropping the flowers (seen in FG), except that I love the mood you have caught in this colorful landscape shot, Silvio!

Great sharpness and well caught contrasts within the scene.
The picture gives a relaxing feeling when looking for few seconds.
Nice shot!

Have a nice weekend.

Ciao Silvio,

By the looks of flower thaching all over the ground, I immediately took a look at the date and July made me feel warm. Your composition is beautiful. You've nicely taken a moment of nature in this frame. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hello Silvio, thank you for sharing such a beautiful meadow with us, I would love to see it for real.
The reds jump out of the screen!
I think like Robert that I would have cropped it just a little bit tighter, as I find the grassy ridges in the bg a bit distracting.
You live in a very beautiful part of the world.
Tfs, regards Jean.
