I made this set of 4 out of nothing really. I had a 30min gap between conf calls in the afternoon, the rain had eased off to a light drizel so I popped out with the K-1, 25 and a Yongnuo flash - bit of fiddling to get into an usable exposure zone - 3 mins, 4 shots - 15mins PP

Loving your experimental phase Robbie - I'm not often a fan of overly vibrant colours but these work well!

Saying that, the more muted blues in No.2 work brilliantly against the Poppy red

I love 3 and 4, such 'happy' images.

Thanks John. I drive the wife nuts by printing some off in A3+ and threaten to put up on some wall No 2 has come out as a weirdly balanced and captivating image.

Thanks, some like the Yellows more, some are drawn to the Reds

This seems to be very true although reading your post about printing them I think number 2 would make a great framed print on the wall of a classic living room, whereas 3 and 4 would be more suited to a lively colourful area in the home.

Do you mind if I quote you on this?

That is a lovely shot, with the rain drops adding the icing to the cake.

I too love the vibrancy of the last two. Poppies are good too but on the second there is a halo effect around the fringes, maybe down to desaturating the background in post processing?

I agree with Rob's comments, and having spotted the halo effect, it is distracting. I prefer the yellow flower shots, and I like number 4 even more when the image is reversed left-right.

Would be the desaturation. So tick another for the Yellows Thanks for feedback.

Interesting that you say distracting, some enjoy that effect, different eyes, different views. Unfortunately it is not something I can easily erase. Glad you liked the others, thanks for your feedback.
