I liked the rose against the wall, very striking. That last shot with the kids on the motorcycles is well done too...I have a hard time getting moving things in focus, especially if they are coming towards/going away from me. Any specific camera settings you use?

# 2, 3(also great PP), 6, 9 are great shots IMO

1, 4, 5 are just fine

7, 8 I don't like:

7 is too much PP: I d tried a BW version and with a heavy light on the upper left corner instead of the lens flare.

8 hat too contrast and too blue saturated sky
I like more hues like this one:


in conclusion a very nice set of shots, some of which anyone of us would haveliked to have taken

Generally speaking I shoot in Aperture Priority mode and use the exposure compensation when needed. In this series the only one that's a bit different is the motorcycle shot of my kids. There I was in full manual mode where I wanted to lock the exposure - I found that the darker pine trees (kind of visible in the left side of the shot) really fooled the exposure meter and caused over exposure. I'm also quite sure that I was using continuous AF in the riding shots as well.

Thanks for the comments!

Re: PP on number 3 -This was one shot where I walked past this flower one day when I did not have the camera and I knew even before taking the shot what I wanted to do with it in photoshop... (Thankfully the flower wasstillthere the next day.) I wanted to reduce the saturation in all but the flower petalsto just about nothing and then inverse my selection and bumpup the saturation a *little* bit in the red...

Thanks for the comments!
