V6 for the bench, V7 for the mossy stump, submerged in a sea of blue.

The soft light has probably favoured the capture of the colours very naturally, Ed, although it usually means longer exposures which can complicate matters under the canopy.
A lovely set and I bet the scent from all those bluebells was glorious.

The light has helped the flowers stand out more, Ed and appear more vibrant, so the lack of sunshine was helping you there.
V6 for the comp is my pick of this choice set.

Some wonderful tones from the subdued lighting. A well-composed set but v7 is a stand out for me.

A lot of these dead trees did look like people particularly in the gloom, they provide endless opportunities for photographs, you will see more in the coming days. Many thanks for all your c&c's they are much appreciated, Ed

Oh Ed. these are fantastic. I can't pick any special one as there are all so unique.
Perhaps V6 with the seat or V7 with the mossy stump. Lovely collection. Great work……
