    I also like #1 best although there is nothing shabby about #2...

    #1 for me too. #2 is also excellent but the alignment of the tall grass would make me crazy if it was my shot. In #1 they point to the tree in #2 they distract from the tree on the left and the placement of the 2 patches of tall grass pull my eyes to the edge of the frame. Maybe that's just me though. I don't like it as well as the first one so I had to try and figure out why and that is what I came up with - does it make sense.

    #2 would look nice on my bedroom wall, so would #1. Why not both.

    Looks like number 1 is the winner - for me too

    That must be the shortest reply ever given on this forum, and now I've spoilt it by explaining that. Good shot, Katy. I like.

    Katy, they are both gorgeous. I love the combination of the vibrant foreground with the dreamy backdrop. No1 wins in terms of composition. If you could just get rid of the yellow bogie just below the r/h side of the tree....perfection!

    I had uncomfortable visions of you sitting in the lotus position dressed in an afghan coat with a joint dangling from your lips....next assignment perhaps?

    Re: I am a lone tree in a field of buttercups!

    Thanks, super much!!! This past spring, I just felt like I couldn't do a single thing right with my camera - my vision was dead! (Yeeeeehs - eesh!) Now, suddenly, I'm having so much fun again. Also, (and, maybe, this is part of the reason why) I realized that I missed my anniversary! (tsk!) I thought that I'd gotten my 450D at the end of June but it was, actually, June 9! That day, I figured out how to turn it on, went out into the field at noon, had a wonderful time and was COMPLETELY perplexed with why my photos were turning out like they were. (I won't even give you a link to that blog post - it's pretty, well.....) Point is, I've come full circle!

    The funny thing is, I shot this....

    Steve, did you sneeze on your computer screen, again?!

    JK! Will do!

    Yes, well, if you all wonder where I've been for the last day or so.... I was lying in a dead faint just from the mention of the dreaded, drat 'SP' word. And, I'm not talking about Silver Efex Pro!

    #1 is stunning! I like how it has 3 distinct depths in regards to the DOF and the fog.

    Katy,

    I am going to run with the crowd on this one and say #1 for me too.

    However, I have a challenge for you if you should ever encounter such a scene again....

    I really feel that this could be a perfect trio set of photos. What do you think about a disconnected panoramic with three similar but different images lined up together to make the shot? I honestly felt a bit disappointed when I scrolled down past #2 and there wasn't a #3... it just felt incomplete that way. Maybe two trees in one shot, one in the middle, then two in the last one? If you could get the angles of the trees and grasses to both line up as well as have different perspectives (there's the real challenge), I think you could create a false panoramic by only photographing say two trees and making it to look like five.

    What do you think?

    - Bill
