Still not much sign of spring-like weather here, but some of the wild flowers are starting to show at last. Normally I don't like daffodils: they look like they're made of plastic even when they're not, but when they're small, dainty and native wild ones growing like this, what's not to like ? :-)

Bit of a wider view, sorry about the noise in the sky and elsewhere, but I've had to compress this down to 50% to get under the posting limit. I don't think I've ever had to use that much compression before, and it definitely introduces artifacts

And a final, slightly wider view, still some more jpg compression problems I'm afraid!

Regards, John.

In the first two shots, I especially liked your use of the path bringing a sense of movement to the picture.
And out of these two, I'd prefer the second one for I find the longer branches of the trees make them more aesthetically pleasing objects and the blue opening on the top provides a vanishing point(or an escaping point!) to the image, at which everthing along with the path seems to be directed.

Very nice photo, John. I too prefer the second one. The third is alsonice but it is split in half, and as Peterson says in one of his books, people don't like ties. reason why in most sports there must be a winner. The sky and trees compete with the field of flowers and the interest gets lost.

Thanks for the interesting comments guys: strangely #2 was an afterthought, but since I couldn't choose between them, second opinions are very welcome!

John.
