Challenge #382 - SIGNS OF SPRING

RESULTS!

Thank you everyone for so many beautiful entries!

I chose the winners for the way they show spring as distinct from summer (in my humble opinion) plus of course composition and general image quality - and please don't take any of the following comments too seriously!

In order posted:

Fenka856 - "Weed". Nice little flower but not sharp - out of focus or maybe moving in the wind with a slow shutter speed?

Jcambo7 - "Sunny days and Daisy's". No complaints about this sharp shot of a daisy.

Gil Bean - "Petunia, hibiscus, lavender". A pretty group but somehow lacking in impact and sharpness. I think you tried to get too much in here.

Maureen Souza - "Abandoned Dove Nest". Birds nesting and eggs are surely a sign of spring, but somehow this composition doesn't grab me, Maureen.

Raven - "A Time for Regrowth". Really liked this and can almost smell those needles and fresh buds.

mrshobden - "Spring has sprung on the salt marshes!". I think you'll probably agree, Linda, it looks a bit flat and not very sharp, but I doubt that I could have done better as it must have been hard to position for a good composition from this particular plant.

JMAST - "Tulips". Like the way all those tulips seem to be yearning for more Spring sunshine. Good sharp shot.

Kevan - "Bloomin' tree". When the trees are in blossom I know it's Spring and no other season. You nailed it with this excellent composition. Sharp focus where it matters, and the background just right.

Messier104 - " A Bug's Eye View". A clever idea and hard to get right.

C4SMT - (untitled). The central composition with one tulip in sharp focus amid a field of them works really well in this shot.

marie - "Bluebells Spring Enchantment". A beautiful composition. The soft shades of green and the haze of bluebells on the forest floor really says "Springtime" to me.

BobsYourUncle - "Spring means Beautiful Sunset! Yes indeed, a nice sunset - but really not exclusive to Spring.

CMOats - "Canada geese babies & parents 'gone fishin". Goslings and ducklings are a sure sign Spring has arrived. I'm seeing them every day on our waterfront right now but the youngsters are almost lost in this shot. Nice composition but a much closer shot (hard to get, I know) might have been better.

pwdieter - "Prom". Good idea! I was actually expecting more "people" shots, rather than so many flowers. I guess this was more of a flash snapshot that a carefully arranged composition, which would explain why the subjects are all looking in different directions?

***************
AND THE WINNERS ARE:

#1 Kevan for "Bloomin' tree".

#2 Marie for "Bluebells Spring Enchantment".

#3 JMAST for "Tulips"

Hon.Mention to C4SMT for his shot of poppies which should really have been disqualified for not having a title in the subject line (see the rules, Simon!) but I didn't notice in time to warn him.

***************



Spring is a time of renewal: trees and flowers bursting into life, gardens getting planted, skis put away and summer toys dusted off, and "spring cleaning" in its many forms. So let's see some well composed shots illustrating this wonderful season as distinct from summer.
