Wonderful series.  The waterfall one is interesting.  It may be a rare example of where you need a long exposure time in order to highlight the water.  All too often, folks want cotton water as a style thing, maybe driven by Instagram?

#1 is outstandingly good, and hopefully you fully realize why it is so good! Placing the leaves in the foreground out of focus makes for a much more engaging photo and has depth to it that would otherwise be lost without that one simple element. Oh, and having that many leaves around doesn't hurt the photo either. haha

Nice set but I guess I'm the only one that would like fewer out  of focus leaves in the frame but they do frame the photo.

I don't like the out of focus leaves either - they are annoying, not as a frame but that they obscure the otherwise great picture.

Thanks everyone for commenting, it's appreciated.

The leaves are intentionally out of focus in the first shot as an attempt in creating 3-dimensionality. I never thought this would be such a controversial decision!

Number 1 is a clear winner in my opinion.

If I had taken that, I would clone out the signage on the tree and happily do a 20 x 16 (or even larger) and put it on my wall.
