Linseed And Pinks

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, hope you're enjoying the lovely weather, I am, as I have a Week off this Week SmileX Went to Bodiam Castle yesterday, and spotted a wonderful field of Linseed Flowers. Took some close ups, as in V 2, 3, 4, Then suddenly this little girl all in Pink, rushed past me, and into the field. She wasn't alone for long, and I only managed one half decent shot of Her. I've kept some softness V1 and 5, as it seemed to suit, rather than the predictable sharp main subject. Hope you like, and yes, there will be more Pink to come after this Sunday's Race For Life Smile Thank you all very much for your kind votes and comments on my previous Race For Life pic's.

All the best to all,

John Smile

4 and 5 are great shots of the linseed flowers, but v1 is a wonderful capture - works a treat, and I like the few yellow flowers dotting the background too.
3 Jun 2010 6:05PM
Lovely capture and the composition is superb with the girl to the left and the band of yellow flowers.

V1 and V5 for me. Well spotted, John. And I love the way the little girl is so engrossed in the flower that she seems totally oblivious of your presence Smile

Superb maultiple upload, it builds up a picture. V1 is the crop for me, I find the dark strip at the top of V6 a bit distracting. V1 just contains its own her little world so well.
V2 and V5 also excellent. I like the blue haze in V5.
Oh and shortlisted here too.

All that linseed and not a cricket-bat maker in sight!
The photograph is superb - natural, unposed, chance - and you had the sense to take it. I am truly envious.

V1 is really excellent and perfectly captures the very essence of summer. The colours and composition are wonderful, you've really excelled yourself here old bean. Your luck is obviously in this week, the weather is set fair and you've been shortlisted several times already

Thank you SO much everyone, I'm so pleased that you like this pic', but to be honest, it really was just a very quick snap shot, but i'm now very glad that i took it.
