This is one of those cases where breaking the "rules" works out well.   The backlighting, while not normally a good choice, is dramatic and appealing.  The white sky even works on this.

 

I do agree that the composition could be improved, with cropping at the top, and it would be nicer with just a little more space on the left side.  (If it was my picture, I would add some border on that side, and paint it in to match)

 

The depth of field is a little shallow, but I would submit this anyway.  It has enough overall visual appeal to sell in spite of its technical flaws.  Find out what kind of flowers these are, so you can use that as a keyword.

Next time you have a white sky try placing the camera just a little higher and pointing it down that way the flowers and the buds will be juxtaposed with the mountains and you can crop the sky out in the camera. This composition will also help your camera when setting the f-stop and shutter speed because the meter will not average the bright white sky into the exposure.

Do you ever feel like you're talking to a brick wall sometimes when critiquing a photo? All you often hear is silence. Not that I've got anything against brick walls.

I thanked the original commenters for the feedback yesterday, but as my account is still pending approval, it looks like the post was never approved by a moderator.
