    Wrong colour, actually, but a nice one all the same, don't you think?
    (This goes with Hair Bear's thread, sort of...)

    Very nice.
    I like no.2 with the out of focus flowers.

    Sounds like the idea --- but make my son repair my bike for me at long, long last first, please! (I have asked him since the earliest beginnings of spring, he only says "What you need is a new bike really", which I know, too, and that's that then).

    There are a couple of poppies here and there, but not covering whole fields, not that I could find some as yet...

    I like #1. The contrast (not the technical, but the side by side) of the flowers to the greenery is eye-catching.

    The only fields of wildflowers I see are down the median of the interstate. I'm not quite that daring, LOL.

    These are nicely shot LaFoto. I really like the DOF of the first one. I almost looks like you took it with a lensbaby? Either that or selective blurring in PS. Either way I like it. It draws my eyes to the focus ones on the left in the middle.

    No lensbaby in my possession as yet, Chris, and no PP work on that one other than enhancing the contrasts (it was taken at 300mm, so became quite a bit hazy, for I couldn't be bothered to put on the polarizer). Thanks for liking it. I still feel the close-ups are more "my forte" than scenic photos, but I am working on wide-angle landscapes (of which this is NONE at 300mm, of course ;)).

    I really like your landscapes, LaFoto. I'm still interested in seeing you storm pictures though. Even if they are not that good in your eyes, the fact that they are storm pictures is all that matters to me. They are automatically good when they are of a storm IMHO.

    :oops: hmmm, they don't really-really-really show it was a storm, and that funny storm was all around us and all we ever got out of it was one flash of lightning. No rain, nothing to test the bulb setting on the camera on. Nothing.............. :(
    But I am happy :goodvibe: to hear you like my landscapes.

    I have a fondness for cornflowers, and never see many together like in that first shot, so thanks for sharing these pics, Corinna!

    Of the closeups (which are lovely), I prefer #2 with the flashes of colour in the background.

    nice, i like the first one for the scene depicted ... and the shallow dof.

    and i like the second for the detail ... the second has so much more to offer than the third i think. In the third you focussed on the part closest to you, hence you lost the central part of the blossom.

    composition seems slightly more balanced in 3 though.
