JT,
Thank you for the explanation the link to Youtube. After listening to the 6minute snippet I am beginning to see
what you are attempting in this shot. Being the non-creative sort, it will take time for me to wrap my head around
a new concept. :D
Blessed are those who have talent and appreciation, who do not have talent and no appreciation (blissfully ignorant).
I am the cursed one who has some appreciation and no talent. It is like you are in liquid oxygen - oxygen wont let you die
and liquid wont let you live. :lol:

Lovely slippers there Valery. That little blue thing in the upper right side in the third image is a tad distracting to me.

Hi, JBTaylor;

Those are some excellent shots of Pond Lilies! :D Well done.
Especially the last lily shot with the wide lens gives a feeling of fast flight over the pond; the wide angle stretches the lily leaves forward and distorts some elements which aids in that feeling of forward movement. I like that look of shallow fly-over you captured of the lily pond.
As for the grass waving in the wind feel, I think you are absolutely there in the grass shot but it's a tight frame compared to the scene in Witness and that's OK. The movie captures a wider scale and the motions of the high grass tops are what makes the scene interesting all the while some short blades stay more still. It's a motion picture vs your desire to capture that look in a still.
I think you've got it. :)

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Those are the loveliest wild Ladies' Slippers I've seen, ValeryD. Honestly. The variety of pink-blue colours, topped with bright white ribbon-like petals, set in a lush green, vibrant wild surrounding are just beautiful! :D You're very lucky to have found this place near a flowing stream: just heavenly.

Thanks for sharing.


Sury, I think that blue patch is the reflection of the sky's blue from the surface of the stream flowing in the background. :) What didn't necessarily bother me can be distracting for others, of course. It's subjective. :)


Thanks for sharing all,
Yildiz

Hi,

:D Apparently, it's possible to achieve warmer colours with ILCE-6000 and Tamron 90mm; just shoot in RAW mode and avoid direct-from-camera JPGs.
Here's one from 01 July 2019.

Yildiz,
I saw it on my phone and thought it might be debris. :oops:
You can also save JPEG settings in memory after tweaking them
to your taste (temp, saturation, etc) and reproduce it rather than
be "forced" to shoot RAW. Thinking aloud.

Thank you, Sury. :)
I'll try what you suggested. That would save a great deal of time.

One of my favourite roses. Looks like it needs a spray to get rid of the bugs.
