The first shot is super, love the hills and the shadows of the clouds.
Also really like the macro's of the flowers, like how you place the DOF in the last two.

Why don't you submit some to the PPG?

Lovely effects with that bottom one. A macro is still on my list but trying to juggle it as the lists getting longer...

The flower shots are the pick for me, 7 and 8 but especially 8. Enjoy the lens.
