Nice composition. Good shot

I would have liked this a lot more without the people walking next to the field. They just don't add to the photo, they're a distraction. Without them I would have rated it a 6 on aesthetics. If a gardner had been kneeling and inspecting flowers off in the distance it would have added a lot to the photo and probably gotten a 7 from me.
I like this a lot. For me it needs the people walking to complete the picture.
art is so subjective. i love the people on the side and the foreshortening that makes the flowers larger than the figures. to me this makes it a unique shot and much more interesting than the run-of-the-mill floral shot.

I was online and saw this last night but didn't have a chance to comment ... but now, tracing it from your link in Pnina's portfolio, I can't help myself. :-) Thanks for the dedication. :-p Before you said anything, I noticed the lens that you used (I looked at your "details" again after I realized that this image reminded me of Pnina's.) I really DO love your tulip shots. This might not be one of my favorites, but it certainly does add to the discussion of good use of a 10mm wide angle shot. As far as sans/avec people ... I would say that they're two rather different shots, saying two rather different things. Which do I like better? Depends on the context. I, personally, tend to like flower shots for the sake of the flowers. But by placing people in the image, especially in a wide angled shot like this, makes it about the people ... taking a walk through a lovely field on a pretty morning ... and, of course, they're wondering what in the world the guy with the huge camera is doing laying on the ground in the dirt. Yeah. :-D P.S. You have now heard me completely exhaust my knowledge of the French language! LOL!!

6/6 Excelente encuadre, magnifico juego de luz, color y belleza de composicion, un cordial saludo Wilson.
Wilson, I don't think I thanked you for your dedication, it is probably Lou Ann and me standing there near the beautiful tulips...I like the way they are turned toward ;-)) us!
Wils, I like it better without the people. The image is strong enough without the people to stand on its own and I agree that they are somewhat of a distraction. But, as said, this is art and definitely a subjective issue. Anyway, well done and an interesting perspective with superb Dof.
I like it without the people, too. They take too much attention away from the flowers, imo. Nice perspective and lighting.
Wilson, I prefer the image without the people, agree with Daniel. Beautiful tulip field, well seen and captured, Sondra

Wilson I like this, but I want to change the perspective a little. Just for fun!
Wilson, As for me, I like this just the way it is. The symetry is perfect as the tulips and road converge on the horizon. The people add a touch of warmth. Excellent.
With or without the people is fine but I think it would be better if the two persons there were walking nearer to each other, maybe almost shoulder to shoulder. There is too much space between them.
