Hi Karen

Good use of a shallow dof on the fg grasses, with excellent colour contrasts between the yellow & blue. Have a nice weekend!

Nicely composed Karen with the main grass stem off centre and the others slightly blurred. The exposure is excellent considering you were shooting up towards the sky.

Hi, Karen: I loved the texture and contrast!

Hello Karen,

Text book quality images on the use of narrow dof.
I just love this for its simplicity of the sharpness of the subject against a lovely blue b/g.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Great color and light. The creative point of view and good composition, along with your selection of depth of field, turn this into a very pleasing and interesting photograph.
Nice technique and good work.
