    Well, it's that time of year again - everything is in bloom and so naturally I had to capture just a few. All but the first were taken with a Pentax 55/1.8, the first was shot with an Olympus OM 35-70/4

    Nice ones. The second one is the best IMO.
    In the first and third ones, be careful with the background, it's nicer when it's "clean", without anything to catch the eye.
    With the last one, I'd do a macro on the tiny flowers in order to avoid the wall in the background.

    Thanks for the thoughts Christian! I fully agree, the 2nd one was by far my favorite and what I felt most strong of the group. Thanks for the tips with the backgrounds, I need to work on putting more thought into my frame job.
