Thank you for your kind words. I have found that photographing in the early morning, before the sun gets too warm, works best for the overall lighting effect IMO. (Either that, or later on after the sun starts to go down, or just after a rainfall {but right before the sun comes out} under 'glowing' cloud cover.)

I use a tripod, and lower my shutter speed, in an attempt to achieve a "smooth, creamy pastel look" to the subject, so I am glad you enjoy the look too :)

Thanks again,

Jack
