I like the way the array of flower stems echoes the sun rays, and the colour harmonies here.

Either over or under.

The two flowers in the front are chopped on the bottom.  All I can see now.

To be honest, I would snap up the local contrast, darken the sky, and lighten the flowers. So, for me I would say it wasn't overprocessed, no. Nice shot, though.

Hi Mr P

Itīs catching, the cutting...

Reminds me of the craze for cutting off modelsī heads or, in this case, feet. Have to admit guilt - regarding heads - as an aide to anonymity.

FWIW, to me it's less an issue of overprocessing and more one of competing stories. I'd give k bennett's suggestion above a try. (You might try looking at the image upside down -- what bennett is suggesting pops out.) Compositionally, given what's happening on the top & sides, it feels like the bottom might want a bit more breathing room.

Took this image on the way back from dinner in Grand Teton National Park a few weeks back.  Thoughts?

It is a nice image and  those light rays are lovely. I would actually lean in the direction of _more_ "processing" - the current rendition strikes me as being a bit dark, at least on my monitor.

I agree with the points about composition. Given what you have here I might also consider a bit of a crop on the left side where the ridge begins to rise again.

Take care,

Dan
