Superb set Chris - that first shot is a stand out (IMO), near perfect

Super images that brighten the day.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I like the third image for the dof. I feel it would be better cropped from the top so the trees are a solid block, and dare I say it...without the lady in shot.

Thanks Peter,

The lass wasn't staged, but I liked the contrast in colours with her jeans against the poppies and her red top against the trees
