I like the comp, but the colors look wonky which is unusual for your images.
That central sunflower in the 'trinity' - looks over-processed somehow...

Thanks for the honest feedback Marko. I really do appreciate that.

This one really fell over didn't it. I also got the seasons wrong. It is Autumn not Spring :headslap:.

There wasnt a lot of processing done to this.

Re the colour. I wonder if I dropped the highlights too much?

Since last year, one thing I am doing differently is to develop in Lightroom starting with "camera standard" profile as opposed to the default "adobe color". Normally, I have found I like the colour better and cut down on the amount of processing

The middle flower does look over processed, probably do to sharpening??

Here it the original file SOOC

Ok - Big difference in seasons - and yet ya called it the Colour of Summer - lol!
the white is loss of colour...death...? that's why they are so pale?
If you didn't do much PP wise - did it look this way to your eye?
