    Another try

    One thing I have failed to do much of is flowers and such. So I am making it a point to shoot a few while I am out. I took these three on a short walk today. C&C always welcome.

    This one does not exactly scream spring, but I liked it.

    I just love the colour contrast in the first one, Paul. Nice capture. I don't know whether I should be crediting your glass or your PP skills for the sharpness of your photos, but either way, I am always impressed.

    Thank you Janis, I guess you'll have to give the glass most of the credit there. Other than being a halfway steady hand holder I get little credit as my PP skills are rather lacking.

    I have to buck the trend here and say that I'm most impressed with #2. To be honest, the thing that makes this image for me is the S curve shape to the line of flowers. It is subtle, but very pleasing (at least to my eye).

    Nicely captured.

    Re: Another try

    I like 'em all Paul,

    Can't suggest anything to improve #1, or #2 really.
    It wasn't until Bill mentioned the S shape I saw it, I just knew it was better than average, but couldn't say why.

    On the third, I think I'd clone out the 'half a one' on the lower edge of frame. I still like the shot too though, it reminds me of fireworks.

    Cheers,

    Re: Another try

    Thank you Dave, subtle was the word of the day for that one. It is what made me take the image and get down a little low to strech the s out a little. Glad it came accross.
    Thank you Sharon.

    Thanks Jack...#31 huh.
