The dancing effect their movement displays from the wind coming off Saddleback mt.

Thinking maybe the on the far left that is cut off could be removed for better balance.

The lupine is probably my favorite wildflower Norma. You found a nice cluster and what’s not to like with the purple of the lupine against a backdrop of green. I think your crop idea is the correct call here as it balance out the scene. You certainly caught these lupine in peak condition.

Beautiful, with very nice DOF. I’d definitely get rid of the one on the left.

Nice and crisp! Deep rich color, too. Maybe some edge clean up and cloning would make the image even stronger.

Norma, they do look like they’re dancing with the arching flower heads. This is a beauty with the blue against green. Not having the partial on the left would be a nice improvement, but you’d need to find a different cluster of flowers or move back to get it in (depending on what’s off to the left…)
