She would never say where she came from
And yesterday don't matter if it's gone
And while the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night no one knows
She comes and goes
......... Rolling Stones

Another sing-along image for you!

Lots of Fields of Gold (oil seed rape) and Bluebell woods at the moment so trying to introduce another segment of the colour wheel.

These were captured in the Winter Garden in Anglesey Abbey a week or so ago. I like the composition and receding (de)focus but maybe the foreground tulips should have been included in the focus range?

This a bit different and all the more satisfying for that, Dave; the defocussed immediate f/g and b/g does not worry me, and I guess had you been able to use f/14 at 28mm. rather than 146mm. then all would have been sharp. But as I say, I like the way you have captured the scene. The birch trunks add so much to the scene with contrasting colours and textures.

The Y-shape tree gives the bite. So long as that is sharp, as it is, I reckon everything else fits into place visually around it.

Agree completely with Ronnie. The mass of colour is of the utmost importance, the repeated patterns only slightly less so, the detail in the flowers - not a lot. There is of course a point of precise focus: the conjoined birch trunks suggest Fred and Ginger about to waltz across a carpet of petals while their less-gifted co-stars look on. A most engaging thought - and photograph!

Bill

The trees and tulips make such a different colour contrast to what we expect at this time of the year Dave. The tulips were barely open when we went, but here they really do make a carpet of colour. That tree in focus helps to anchor the picture to the left and so they eye moves on from that point into and across the picture - works a treat SmileSmile

The more I look at this the more I enjoy it. It's a very brave image - not just the use of focus, but that strip of trunks and darkness along the top could easily look top-heavy. The fact that the birches rise from among the tulips prevents that. Very clever, thoughtful composition.

The colour and bold verticals are very striking and make the image, you composed it beautifully in terms of zooming in. As regards the focus, I'd have liked to see either an even narrower band of in focus, centering on the foremost trunk, or else maybe risking f/22 to try and get it all in focus. I know the latter involves the degrading effects of diffraction but for this type of graphic image I don't think it would be very noticeable.
