Personal Time...

Ahhh, such a refreshing evening!

I had a chance just to go out by myself and shoot for myself without any restrictions.

Here are some of the results:

Wish the bugger was on the lighter side, but still a fun comp.

nice strong colors..

I think your first and last is the most interesten..

A other note.. maybe place your watermark somewhere else? so the viewer can get a better feel to your images.

Lovely tones and mood. Even the pictures themselves look relaxed.

Thanks guys!

Yeah I'm going to work on new watermarks here in the next month or so, some for proofing and some for showing.

I'm going to upload some photos from today that I felt were good enough to show so hold on.

Creamy shots Chris and I imagine it felt great to go out and shoot for the pure pleasure of shooting - nice series.

Chris, I like your photos with the caveat that the watermark makes them really hard to enjoy.

Great series Chris and hard to pick a winner from any of these. All look great. Love the limited DOF and softness of the colours. As for the watermark, I do it as well (Like anyone would bother to steal my stuff!) but maybe just reduce the opacity more and put it close to the subject but not right on top of it.

I guess the second last one in the second series is my favourite.

another great macro set, crisp sharpness combined with saturated colors, contrast and smooth green bokeh is always a winner.
