Image 1 Potentilla multifida L. ??

May I request you to pl. post high resolution images for proper id.

Potentillas are tricky even when you have a herbary specimen, not speaking about low resolution images. I agree that the first image could be placed with some certainty in Potentilla multifida agg. The second I don’t dare guess, but I am sure it is not Potentilla pamirica as was suggested. It´s all a job for experts.
