    Nice thought, hope we begin to catch you up soon. Number 2 is a particular favourite of mine, nicely judged depth of field.

    well, it looks like our 2 weeks of winter are over after today, but I think it'll be a good month untill spring will start properly... Nice to see what we can look forward to! Love the third one :smile:

    Is that sensor noise or some noise/grain applied in post-processing in the first image? It looks cool but just seems a bit un-NEX-like.
  7. I cropped it down quite a bit, so it picked up a bit of noise.

    Dave, these images give me hope! Spring doesn't normally hit us until April here on the shores of New York state, though this year - who knows!

    I shouldn't complain...we've had an easy winter, so far.

    Totally amazed to see this large gorgeous bush of Camellias in middle of February in North West England in some one's front garden;I understand early March is the norm.

    Well I'm busy drinking in the beauty of these sharp, clear colours and longing for some sunshine here in the grey UK! Thanks for giving us this little taster of things to come Dave :)

    No thoughts, just envy, as we are still mired in winter. Beautiful though,
