The shape of the tree, and the colours of the flowers: beautiful.

bluebells always make for a great picture, and yours is no exception. the blues contrast beautifully with the greens in the grass. the tree in the cnetre provides an excellent focal point with plenty of detail.

Hello Noel - I was delighted to open up this image. The bluebells are a wonderful carpet of blue which work so perfectly with the vibrant greens. The light is good and I like your FP which is so well detailed. Very attractive work. Warm regards Rosemary

Nice square framing to concentrate on this wonderful vivid photo of the tree trunk and blue bells. The details in the wood are exquisite and contrast so well against the green grass and the blue bells. The play of shadow and light is also another attractive feature and very well managed by you.
Nice work, congrats

This is the type of photo that would also work well as a painting...and I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's just something so incredibly tranquil about it! (Terrible English I know, ending a sentence in a preposition...I'm ashamed of myself! :))I may have mentioned this before, but it reminds me of Thomas Kinkade's works. Two things jump out at me here, the layers of depth, and the light...these two aspects working together really give this relatively simple scene a lot of charm. The violet color from the flowers is a real gem against the green grass and "earthy" tones from the trees. Now this is a place for a nap! Gotta' love the simple pleasures in life, and this setting is one of 'em! Well done.
Best regards from the infernal oven of Phoenix,
