I think it is high time for me to 1) test if I can post an image and 2) bravely ask for your feedback and suggestions!

It's all a matter of taste

I like them both, the colours in the second one are a little nicer but the horizon to the right has become a little more distracting - to me anyway.

Nice shot all the same, it's like many photo's the users here could probably suggest so many possible alterations it's mind boggling
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

The colours are better and it now has more punch. I think the sky still is still the main problem in the image, if it was a deep blue then it'd be great but the whiteness of it is harsh. Maybe if it was reshot from a higher viewpoint then there'd be no sky in the image or if not then wait till a lovely blue sky.

Yes, you are right, I see your point. I tried a couple from a higher view point, but IMO the composition was not good:

How about a portrait crop with just the left hand foreground flower?

Yep. Or even a square format shot mostly of the left hand side. I do like fields of sunflowers...
Best wishes,

I tried both.... now I cannot decide which I like most!

And thanks again for all the good comments, this motivated me to experiment and try to improve! I guess that is the purpose...
