Silver Birch Hollow

At a local house and garden they have an steep sided hollow with Silver Birch trees planted on both sides. I've tried to photograph this rather lovely part of the garden a few times and never been happy with the results. At the weekend I decided to try ICM, I'm quite pleased with some of the results. The last two photographs are in camera multi exposures with ICM, some trees and the last a view of the plant fair that was in progress. Any thoughts or observations welcome.

I quite like those Nigel, especially the last three. Favourite would probably be No.4

The first two for me - simple and abstract. With the last three, realism and abstract seem to be in conflict.

So that's one vote for the last 3 and one for the first 2 so far - that's a lot of help!

Definitely no 2 for me. Elegant! Also like 1 and 3.

3 and 4 stand out for me, 3 for great composition/structure (which I sometimes/often find lacking in ICMs) and a ghostly 'je ne sais quoi' about it, and 4 for composition and its very painterly quality and boldness. The last image is interesting, but too harsh for my eyes.

Really something special about #3.

Nice work, very "impressionist"

I see the first two as abstract and the last 3 as being more impressionistic.
Thank you for your thoughts all.
I do enjoy the slightly randomness and unexpected results from doing this kind of mucking about. I think my personal favourite from the silver birch shots is the 3rd image as it achieves a little of what I was after, it shows enough to get a good idea of how the scene was whilst leaving space for the imagination.

1, 2 and 3 - that little set are my selection- lovely radiant/ghostly quality to the silvery-white trunks

The first three are my favourites, especially No.3 which is sufficiently 'blurred' to have an abstract quality but which retains enough structure to be identifiable.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Number 2 for me - the simplest is the best.

Love these Nigel... esp (for me) the simplicity of two and three... particularly like 3, and the mixture of abstract/reality, and the figure through the trees... gives the shot great context...

Best
