Definitely a photograph to look at -longer as only one second-, well done! But I could imagine to retain the colours.

Excellent shot, Graham. Nice one.
I do feel that the Lavender heads are too dark, almost turnin' to black down near the house. They should be a mid-tone.

Thank you to Paul and Paul for your good comments.

The colour version with the lavender heads does look good but I prefer black and white.

I agree that the lavender heads should be more of a mid tone in order to represent reality, but I darkened them to add drama to the picture.
Friendly Regards
