I liked the yellow flowers and juxtaposition of this great bunch of flowers. Ocotillo is a strange cactus here in the sonoran desert that looks dead much of the time but when exposed to water or other conditions grows green leaves and red flowers then the yellow leaves fall off and it goes back to being a stick. Before and after using basic adjustments then an ai-remix over a saved preset of mine.
either one floats my boat
Totally agree with @el48tel.
I also like both… nice work.
Love the colors in the original …
Both beautiful hut leaning towards 2nd.
