Could'nt wait to see these gorgeous flowers in different vibrant colours, but as I travelled towards South of Holland to experience this beauty of nature the weather terribly turned down on me. It never stopped pouring, and would have been really lucky if the sun would have shone even for two minutes to capture these beauties on my camera. Eventually I did manage some.
Dear critiques I'll be glad to receive some help in shooting in low weather conditions when you expect atleast a little sunlight. I did try to play around with my ISO settings. (ISO 200)

I like this shot. Good lines leading into the horizon. The tulip in the foreground is a bit distracting - perhaps a lower angle would have solved this? Re the sun, it is generally a bad idea to shoot flowers in sunlight anyway, although a brighter day/touch of fill in flash may have helped. Nevertheless, an attractive and nicely composed photo and I'm very envious re the trip! Vicky

Agree with Vicky ~ Beautiful colour but the foreground tulip should have been smaller or sharper?

Very nice perspective and use of dof, but I would have excluded the sky altogether. I agree about the dominant out-of-focus foreground tulip. But you could crop the bottom and may only need to clone out a bit of the head of the tulip, and you will still have a nice picture. Flowers often suffer burn-out from strong sunlight, so don't worry about it not being sunny, it looks fine.
