Wonderful colours - I might be tempted to add some texture and a paint filter effect to produce someting in the form of an oil painting...?

Great as it is though and one to be proud of - like the delicately hanging mist!

Veryvery nice and that gate at the end,Perfect.

If you can't sell this one people just don't want to buy pictures I guess.

The colour of the bluebells is just about perfect. Also that fence is absolutely essential to the success of this image as it stops the eye from wandering off into the distance.

A really charming image, with so many elements to enjoy - the mist, the arrangement of the path leading the eye between those trees and bluebells down to the distant gate. It's a beauty.

Beautiful image!

There have been a fair few bluebells shots on EPZ recently but for me this is one of those that stands out from the crowd.

You need something atmospheric or special to make bluebell shots worth a second look, dappled lighting or mist usually hit the mark for me. The subtle mist and central path make this a very special image.

Great work

Neal as everyone said and more everything about it is wonderful and amazing!!! I just wish when I went to this site in Hertfordshire that my images had come out just as good, I am guessing you got there at the crack of dawn while the mist was in the air and before the many visitors arived.
Oh well better luck next year for me but well done to you with this shot. Mandy

Hello Mandy, yes you're right I got there nice and early (0615?) well before the crowds. I couldn't believe how many people arrived later though! But then again, what a spectacular sight...
