Soggy Ground

Sprouting plants in my garden

Nice collection!! My favorites are 3,4,5. You achieved very very nice color too!!! talk about vibrant! I love these three pics. Their composition and color are great. They work beautifully together!! I love the drops of water on the green one....and LOVE the green!! lol

# 2 is beautiful with the light. I love all the glistening and reflecting. That alone is gorgeous! I do feel like you have two different sets here though instead of one set of five. Nothing wrong with that. I just like them separate is all. Great job this week. Really enjoyed them.

Wow! Overall very nice. My favorites are #4 and #5. #4 is just bursting with joy and so vibrant! #5 I just LOVE how you got the little drops of water and caught that moment in spring. Very nice!

Hi Em! I think, for some reason, I haven't commented on the last two challenge photos of yours! I'm very sorry...I've been having a hard time getting around to everyone's photos before the week ends!

But here I am to comment!

When I look at all the images together it seems like #3,4,5 were taken perhaps at the same time, while you had the same vision in mind. Those three make a lovely set.

The other two give us a very different view of spring. I really love the composition of the first image, except that one particular branch seems to cut right through the center of the image diagonally. If it wasn't such a straight branch, it wouldn't have been so distracting. I do really enjoy all the textures surrounding all the dominant shapes.

okay, it's off to bed for me! I can rest easy that I commented on everyone's pictures and then start in on this week's challenge when I get up tomorrow!

Great Job Em! The first one is somewhat abstract--I'm not sure everyone would know it is a tree without the context. Kind of like a scrawling doodle :)
I LOVE the second one. Was it taken in the morning or evening? Very cool colors and reflection of the sky.
Of the close-ups I like the last one best. especially the water droplets and the tiny fuzzies--awesome!!
