I had something a little more like this in mind (though cannot quite execute), however I doubt we still have a field of buttercups

Wow Cass. Your's looks like it's about 115 degrees fahrenheit! My lips are feeling chapped.

Picking up on Craig's point and perhaps not as strong as Cinthia's, I tried a classic 5 x 7 crop. Reduced the amount of sky to equal portion to buttercups. Ensured total height of sky plus buttercups equals 1/3 of frame. Made sure angled board, stone and tree bisected frame to give it strength. Slightly blurred background, tried a foreground/background flip and it didn't work at all. To me the strength is in the fence. Just a thought.

Cheers

Dave
