    I do like that first shot.. Great primary colours, and nice composition as well. Striking :-)

      The first shot is very nice indeed.

          I should have mentioned this, sorry. It was Thursday, I thick, when I ventured into Math Wood near Bourne Lincs armed with E-3, ZD50-200mm, a mini tripod, an FL36r and an idea. It was a dull day but I knew there was a think carpet of Bluebells dying to be snapped. Most shots I had seen up until then were set on showing 'fields-of..' so I thought a single plant artificially lit may be interesting.

          I placed the FL36r off-camera in a variety of places, some yielded pleasant results but mainly - I need some more practice.

          In this shot it was level with the plant, and to the right of shot trying to highlight the plants behind the main subject.

          I ought to ask for advice from others to improve or just for placement ideas - may be in a new thread? Should I post these in "Looking for perfection"?

          Thanks for asking Wee man

            They are each smashing images, very well controlled - but by golly, that first one is worthy of a large poster sized print, it's lovely.

              Aha. Let me reveal a photo idea I have been keeping secret.
              Bluebell photos can quite often come out looking rather similar.. So, go down to your local bluebell wood at dusk with tripod and flash and try light painting the bluebells (perhaps from a low angle). Maybe you can get the "sunset through the trees on bluebells" effect but with a neat new twist. Black sillhouettes of trees on a carpet of backlit blue is what I'm thinking...

                Love that first shot with the colourful rapeseed and clouds in the background leading to the one solitary tree.

                If it were mine I'd tweek the exposure on the background to make it perfect...well done!

                *edit* I see you have posted a Adobe rgb profiled image which has resulted in a reduced brightness and saturation on the web, so my last comment does not apply so much.
                Regards Paul.
                One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.

                  The first shot is a beauty. Cheered me up no end, sitting at my computer in this damp and miserable weather!

                    That first one's great, love the shape the clouds make.

                      I'll echo what everyone else has said - No 1 is a great shot!

                        I'm pleased it had that affect!

                        All thanks for the comments. I'm really pleased you liked the shots

                          Paul,

                          I have had a large-ish (16x20) poster made of a similar scene taken on the same day, and the colours seem very dull. I'm off to do some research of my own as I am interested in finding out more about what you said about colour profiles. Can you or anyone else expand on this?
