Hi John - I like #1 and #2 of the second batch the best - the object lower-right in #3 is a bit distracting. I still can't make up my mind up about the sky in #1. It does add balance to the flowers, but is quite bright. I think it is worth continuing with the experiments
. There is an effect (which I can't remember the name of, off the top of my head), where you combine an oof copy with a regular version of a picture, that I like (I've used gaussian blur in PE7 for the oof shot). I will try to look up the name of it.
Also, hi to cidrmakr and welcome to the forum. Can we expect some pictures of apple based beverages?
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.
