Meadow images have been neglected I think. They make for very attractive subjects and you've posted a good example here.
Best regards, John

A very rewarding subject and you've taken some very good images with an interesting perspective and depth. I don't think the far top of the shots, with the dark shadow areas, add much, so perhaps a haircut at the top would be better, or when shooting, pointing down more to exclude it. Looking forward to seeing more from this meadow.

Very nice - such a beautiful sight. I particularly like #3 with the sharp foreground and soft background.

Very nice shots, the second being my favourite. I'm not sure if I agree with Nigel as I think the dark area adds a sense of perspective.

Too often shots like this end up being a mess of detail, but these aren't. I think this is due to the carefully judged use of aperture and the excellent compositions, using blocks of colour to let the eye wander over the images.

All great shots. But #2 is my favourite.
I quite like the dark area as I think it kind of give some perspective of distance. But then what do I know
I know what i like, If not always why.

Refreshingly different. Great colours and the final 70-200mm shot stands out for me.

Lovely colours and a good use of the tele-zoom.
Best wishes,

Its interesting how we can see differing effects from the same things ... I don't see the perspective or depth as coming from the dark shadows at all, rather through the DOF and receding detail.

For me the shadows equal an unnecessary distraction, in much the same way that they do in behind close-up & macro images where the light fall is very narrow.

Based on McGregNi's suggestion, I've reworked this image to eliminate the shadow at the top of frame..... Definitely better I think.
