Very nice shots, Rob. I like the colors and the perspective that you chose. How do you manage to shoot photos in such a strong wind? I think a split field filter would improve the second photo. Thanks for sharing.
Interesting thought about the splitting filter. I'm not completely satisfied with #2, because of the dark tree at the right. If I crop it off, I miss too much of the flowers in the FG.
I've played with the photo in the raw converter; trying to make the upper half lighter/darker etc etc, but this is still the best I could come up with.
