    very nice set, I particularly like the second one
     
  3. Excellent shots Igor, they are all great. The colours and composition of #6 is right up my alley.

    Beautiful! The colors are superb, as well as the depth of field. Very nicely done.

    Thanks Sharon, long lenses do have a very shallow depth of focus, which can be used for such type of shots.
     
  7. These are good - I enjoyed #1 and #2 the most.
     
  8. great shots. i really like #2
     
  9. The first is my favorite...I love that deep blue sky contrasting against the white blossoms. I was going to ask if you'd used a polarizer on it and then saw that you did...it makes for a gorgeous sky.

    Thanks a lot Sommer, yes, polarizers make a big difference on such kind of shots. I used a cheap ("no name") CPL, which still produces superb color boost!
