This is the begining of Lauren I(left). Those sharp pointy plants in the foreground really bugged me. I thought, uh oh, what have I done! I wished I could erase them. They seemed to harsh or sharp or something. I also wanted to add drama to that large hill on the right but wasn't sure how to do it.
Then I sort of blended the pointy plants and that seemed to be okay (below). I still didn't get drama out of the hill but it seems to flow okay.
