    LOVE this series! The sunset shots with the hay bales are just stunning. Great job. (I like the flower shots too)

    Very nice collection! I really like the top flower image....good DOF, and a little bump of contrast would really make those yellows pop! The second shot is a little hot in places....the bright areas tend to be a distraction. Also, it could use a shallower DOF with the busy background.


    The sunsets are very nice. Good job with the exposure not blowing them out...though I might be tempted to either a) crop a little off the dark, ostensibly featureless bottoms (esp. the first and last....the second one doesn't need much), or don't crop and apply a post processing graduated filter (like the one in Picasa) to the sky portion (this will provide the added benefit of slightly more vivid colors)....then lighten up the entire shot to get some more detail out of the foreground. You can see the hay bales, but seeing them so vaguely is just a tease. A suggestion for further applications is to get a graduated neutral density filter for your camera. They are indispensable for sunrises and sunsets.

    Probably more critique than you were expecting. I get a little carried away sometimes. :)
