    The first and fourth do it best for me. :D I like how you decided on the mdway focus here.

    And the B&W is also more effective with this shallow DOF; I don't think it would be as visually interesting without it sort of falling away like this. Good job!!

    I'll have to go with #3. It seems to be floating and somewhat ethereal. It reminds me how sometimes flowers and really green grass seem to glow a little right at dusk.

    i would have to say #2 and #3... there is just something about the focus in the second one that seems perfect

    #3 and #4 for me. I love your choice of negative space in the 3rd one and on the last one I love the leading lines. Nice job. I like #1 but the DOF is so short that it almost seems to be sectioned off to much. It doesn't fade into blur as much as I think it would need to in order to make the shot better. Great job over all!

    Except for the first one being a bit busy (makes it hard to pick out the subject), these are some really nice shots. I particularly like the second one. :)

    Nice pictures PhotoJoe. I like 3 the best of the group but maybe with a little cropping off the bottom. The floating effect mentioned by drdan creates an interesting look along with the background.
