    The colours in 5 are smashing ... have you increased them a bit?

    My favourite is 2.
    I am a sucker for backlit leaves and flowers so this tree in the foreground with its yellow leaves so nicely lit from behind just does it to me as a frame to the entire scene, along with the leaves at the bottom, those of the water lilies and those of the tree above those water lilies. I just like the composition and (!) lighting here!

    #5 & 6 are very nice. The color in all of them is fantastic, as is the depth of field.

    Yes I increased the saturation for 5 as well as all the others. I take pictures in raw. 2 is one of my favorite too, glad you like.

    Stunning.
    Reminds me very much of the Chinese garden I visited while I was in Vancouver last month. I'd actually say I'm 90% sure it's the same place :D
    Brought out the beauty of it really well.
    I didn't take any pictures the day I went.

    Your comps are very good, enjoyed all the pictures. I especially like #1 and #5, good use of foreground . The rock points directly to the building in #5, not only a good picture but I think it would make a wonderful painting also
