the color on the sky is overdone, and it probably would even detract too much from the subject if it wasn't.

Such nice sky color. The plant would feel much more out of place is more of the barren land was shown. I understand going for minimal, but even another 1/8 in height of that corner being land would have helped.

The sky dominates too much the picture IMO. Difficult to find the subject. 5

I think you've overdone the sky, the clouds are burnt out and I don't like the light blue color in them. Otherwise this idea is good, but I think that you should have taken this closer to the plants and then vertical, but leaving space above it as you do now.

You met the challenge. Not to sure about the artistic value of the photo. I like the sky as the background. Technical asspects are good. Focus, lighting ect. But I do not like the composition.

Awesome, just awesome.

However...

I think it would have been a bit more dramatic if the plant wasn't in the middle, but hey you edited it, not me.

I would have carried the edge of the mound over to the left side - to secure it..... IMO it would feel better...still an interesting image. 6
