The composition is pleasant, I like the flowers and the mood of the distant mountains covered by clouds.
There are two points of view when approaching this photo.
One, traditional, is that the photo lacks attractive light. This is the first thought that came to my mind. There is no Sun, no lights, no saturation. Just gray cloudy weather where most traditional photographers would either keep cameras in bags, or focus on compositions that take advantage of the mood - rigid landscapes with cold and scary atmoshpere.

And this is where the second point of view comes to play.
You took a composition usually reserved by concept of setting Sun, saturated colors and vivid lights. You took it differently. I don't know if this was intention, or it just came out this way because you were too lazy to wait for the Sun :) (kidding! :)).
Either way, you mixed the mood of rigid weather with the composition reserved for vivid lights and colors. And I tell you - it worked very well! I think it is creative. If it were just yet another kitschy vivid sunset with flowers leading to mountains, I would ignore the photo. Because I have seen too many of such images and I am bored with them.
You treated it completely different and I like it.
What do you think?
