Good composition, the angle and perspective are really cool. The only thing I would like to see is better exposure, the flowers are underexposed though the sky is exposed well. Maybe a graduated ND filter would help.

Love the colors and presentation of the flowers in this shot! The flowers are in lovely bloom and sharp focus. Beautifully done and captured. This is a really good shot but it could be even better. As it stands now the areas of brightness and vibrancy rests more in the sky than in the properties of the flowers. Because they are in the foreground and are stereotypically brilliant and bold in hue they should be the ones that are dominating the scene with their vibrant colors. Instead their tones are more subdued and darker. My suggestion is to (if you can) manaully adjusted the settings to underexposure, and use the flash to get the right exposure on the flowers. This will give you a "studio" feel on a cloudy bright day. As an example this photographer managed to capture this //www.deviantart.com/view/30533681/ and I think you could do the same with this composition.

yes ... nice one ! There are so many flowers in this competition and its getting boring to look at them, but you have achieved a super composition and it sticks out from the rest. Well done !!

Lovely flowers, beautiful sky but the whole thing seems too muted to me. The sky is so bright but the bottom is so dark, more balance or flip flop the contrast and brightness and I think this one would sing to me, looks like they want to! :) A 6

I think I would have tried metering for the flowers here as they came out quite dark. Perhaps a little fill flash.

A little fill flash to lighten up the flowers would have worked well here.

This is a great photo, however, I could personally stand for a little more exposure/brightness on theflowers themselves.

The subject (flowers) are so dark when contrasted to the sky... firing the flash would've filled in the darker areas I think.
