That time of year again by the looks of things!

Thought this might be sufficiently different to the norm for a bell shot!

Slightly helped out by PS as needed to blur the b/g a bit more to get the effect I wanted, as my lens doesn't have a large enough aperture to get this completely in camera! Bombs Away!

Weird composition....I like it...but then I am fairly weird according to some Wink

There is actually a good panoramic lurking in here, should you feel the urge...Smile

Cheers for the feedback folks. I knew this would be a challenging composition, which is why I posted it, as I didn't just want to post the normal type bluebell shot.

Yes the Pan crop does work and I like the cropped shot, but I still like the original, as I think it make you work just that bit harder, and it's kinda different to the type of stuff i usually post.

My kinda bluebell shot as I like different. Like the crop too.....though I might have cropped even further from the top to the level where the blue starts. Wink

Both work well in my opinion mate. And a lovely shot. Always good to challenge yourself with something a little different and in this case its paid off nicely. Wink
