Re: Let's see your bluebells!

I went on a Bluebell hunt this afternoon, a bit silly really because the weather was against me - it was dull, windy and then it rained. They aren't very good pictures I'm afraid.











This one's more of an impression

Actually Ellie I quite like this one, the gate track give it a narrative/shape, and the scene is such a typically english spring.

Sorry, you depreciated your images - but my eyes said yes when I saw this, it's right.

Re: Let's see your bluebells!

Some bluebells, I think the focus could be better, need to try harder!

They could well be native, they don't look like the spanish version.

Re: Let's see your bluebells!

Some very nice shots here.Just out of interest how many of you beefed up the saturation of the blues,I know I did.
Nothing wrong with this.As discussed bluebells are very hard to get the colour right.

Re: Let's see your bluebells!

I didnt beef the saturation but when converting from RAW I did change the white balance setting which gave the very blue colour. I took the pictures late in the day, the setting sun also helped give the saturated look. I did think they looked too blue and actually pulled back the saturation slightly.

Re: Let's see your bluebells!

A good show of bluebells this year at Emmett's Garden near Ide Hill. E-3, 14-54, overcast but bright.





Cheers,
