Great use of color and focus separation to isolate the subject. And lovely colors.

Superbly sharp in her eyes. However, beyond the technical, I do like the composition here, with the sun-lit trees framing your wife. Beautiful.

I find this one visually interesting, with the strong contrast between the lone bird and the forest of wires. Might I suggest leveling the near-horizontal lines?

Re: Pipe burst

I’d agree that you found a more interesting composition. However, I find the longitudinal chromatic aberrations — the red and green fringes before and after focus — somewhat distracting.

Alan

The refection on the Flektogon is an image in itself!

So glad that I managed to use the sun-lit birches as a framing - this was my intention but I was afraid that the sun spots in the background might get distracting! Thanks!
