For whatever my thoughts are worth these days, here goes. I think there is a difference between images that are soft - and I have plenty of those just because the focus wasn't right - and images that seem fuzzy or badly pixelated. I feel like there is more of the latter going on here rather than a softness in the tone and color. The other is that you stated others say the image lacks "detail, contrast and brightness". I think you can have soft images that are missing one or two of these but when you start to lose them all, the subject of the image starts to lose its personality. Had this image been razor sharp, the lack of color contrast in the reds and brightness would have been fine, because the sharpness in the details of the petals would guide the eye. Had it been a flower with more internal color contrast, it might have been fine to lose some of the sharpness. But at some point when you start to lose all three, you go from soft to blah. That dividing point, of course, will be very personal and subjective, but I can see why people react to this image in that way.

I was thinking of cropping from the top just to top of the tree on the left, with a corresponding removal from the right side to preserve the aspect ratio. That would keep just a bit of sky where the tracks disappear into the distance. And maybe not even all of that, but just a bit more. But I fully admit I'm not sure if will make it any better; it is just a thought. My general rule is I push PP beyond the limits first as that's the only way to know where the limits are and how an image might go wrong through the wrong treatment.

Nice combination of elements. I might play with the cropping just a little as I think a punchier image could emerge, but I may be over thinking this.

I think its a great shot. I'm sure you could spend hours tweaking the contrast or the shadows etc and maybe find minor enhancement, but I certainly found little to complain about on first glance.

You're lucky you could go in to get the lenses as even that sort of motion can get them to bolt. Great shot.

Just like a human family, no way to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time. I agree with all the ++ comments above but also find this a fun shot to look at.

Comment is appreciated coming from you. The dog was fully relaxed in that dinghy unlike all the ones on the beach that kept barking at it.

Me too. It had been a while since I'd taken any photos of this sort, and I had no idea which ones might turn out, but this is one I really did hope would work.
