It's been a hot July in the DC area. Scorching days with thunderstorms in the evening. A walk at Meadowlark Gardens was a welcome diversion.

#4 - perfect DOF selection; maybe moving to the right a bit would have eliminated the overlap between the two background flowers; nice color and subject balance. #10 is a 10 - beautiful, a study in shape, filling the frame and the lower right petal "falling" off a bit is a perfect aesthetic element.

A wonderful set of images, as usual, Winston. Quite a pleasure to look at.
Good compos, nice and well saturated colors, and most importantly, well controlled DOF as well.

Thank you for the comments. There were relatively few people at the garden yesterday (we had thunderstorms and heavy rain an hour after I left). It's been interesting to go to the park today, having missed spring and early summer due to the lockdown. I am really enjoying the 70-350mm lens, though I carry the 90mm macro with me. I want to learn the lens as well as I can, so I force myself to use it for all the photographs to see what I can do with it.

Great work Winston, another fan of #4 here.
Respect. Observe. Capture. Enjoy.
