The Arrival of Midjourney V5.1

Not even 2 months have passed since V5 was released and we already have its first update. V5.1 is more  “opinionated”, which makes it easier to use for short prompts. In practice, this means that it applies its own aesthetic “look” to the result. For those who prefer the model to be “unopinionated”, there is also the 5.1 RAW model for more literal prompts.


Prompt: Wildlife photography of a bunny in the wood
