Beautiful shots! I really like the smooth colors and soft focus in the last few flower shots!

The soft focus is done so well that I can only say "beautiful"

Thank you for showing another style of floral shots

Happy Easter to you too! These are all really beautiful. Excellent work! The reflection one caught me off guard and kept my attention for a long while, I really like it.

I agree, smooth, soft blur with crisp foreground. Lens made decades ago, becomes a great image maker in the hands of someone competent. Thanks for sharing!

Silky smooth, the first word that popped into my head was 'buttery', I dont know why or what that means, but hey, I love butter and I sure do love your photos!
