A fantastic day here, our first visit to the Coutts Centre, east of Nanton, Alberta; that kind of day where you've got a slight haze overcast, yet large expanse of blue skies; and I love to shoot flowers with backlighting. Textures on rusting iron fences, and layers of greens, and shadows in the backgrounds; This is a most beautifully designed garden space. I couldn't ask for more! F/7.1 a sweet spot for this lens. With this kind of lighting, little needs to be done to the image files. Maybe a vignette, or some might add a bit of sharpnsss or clarity in Lightroom; this were straight out of the camera. Love to do that when I can. Big smiles here.

Well you certainly captured all the elements you said you were after. I particularly like, though, the first scene with the birdhouse on a large stump {and lots of areas of green}
