The photography is astounding. I love the colors in this piece, but originality lacks. The mountains look further forward, meaning that they're closer, which is nice to the eyes. Flowers take my eyes, as they contrast mostly everything, and thats a good thing. Pastel waters are great.
I can say that it looks like you just threw the flowers there, but thats the flowers fault, OK? My eyes are very pleased, and you have a lot less to improve on, as you already look very professional. Nature scene is beautiful, lake scene adds a lot, all you need is some originality, and you're checked for me!
Thank you for the critique! Those aren't flowers - they are Mule Ears a type of plant that is abundant in the Sierra. They are yellow because they think it is Autumn. I was happy to find such a contrasting subject in the Mule Ears.
