I discovered this patch of (obviously planted) wildflowers today, and I was experimenting with focusing on them while blurring out the barn. This was one of my favorites, there are many more on my flickr. SOOC, not a drop of PP on this, and I kinda like it that way (I may take out that barbed wire fence). I would love some other opinions!

That last shot is a winner. Nice work. Try and get rid of that barbed wire in the first shot, in the last, it's not as distracting.


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

That's the first order of business once I get around to getting these babies in Photoshop later this evening :) Will re-post when it's done! Do you think I should get rid of that horse (white blob next to the barn) as well? I was considering it. It's a little distracting, since it's so bright.

The last shot is what I was going to suggest when I viewed the first picture. Very nice.
Make the horse go away and at least the top row of wire.

In the first shot, I'd leave the horse, because you can tell it's a horse. In the third, the bokeh has blurred it past the point of recognition, so I'd clone it out on that one.
