Lovely tones but the busy BG & left side detract for me.
1/4000s & iso 400. Was that really necessary - must be a fast moving fence!

Thanks folks for looking and commenting.

wadna... good point, of course the speed wasn't necessary but the wide aperture was and you can't have one without the other! I wanted a blurred background (but not too blurred). I've taken to using 400 ASA because I read that the 6mp sensor in the K100 has its widest dynamic range at this speed rather than 200 ASA.

Best regards,

Andrew
