    Similar to my last post with wildflowers I wanted to know if this one is too busy. Unlike the other I did crop some of this one....but still there are a lot of flowers. I wanted to capture the prolific nature of the columbine (esp. the less frequently seen all white variety) in this scene...and I thought the cowbane and lupine added a nice touch too. So it was hard for me to pare down.

    Any comments welcome on all aspects of the shot.

    This was taken a couple of weeks ago northwest of Laramie, Wyoming.

    I would crop down to a print ratio 5:7 or 8:10 and try to keep my focus on a select cluster or group of flowers. as is I feel like there is to many flowers fighting to be the subject.

    Great colors..

    Still trying to decide if the lighting should be brighter or if the scene captures a late or early moring ambiance. Just my thought

    I like the lighting, but like Vmann said, too many subjects fighting for attention; a nice tight crop on a few of the closer blooms would be the way to go IMHO...
