  2. nice work, great background
  3. #2 is a real sweet pic and great bokeh. I think a small crop is needed.
  4. smaller crop? like another portrait style like the first one? or just a closer landscape crop of just the butterfly? I'll see what I can do
  5. Well I think here the rule of thrids is creating too much back ground, as nice as the bokeh is, it seems a bit distracting to me, jmho.
  6. fair enough - I've been known to take the rule of thirds a bit too far sometimes

    I'll see what else I can do :) 
  7. nice work, paul
    love that first one
