These are the first wildflowers I have seen this spring where I live. I missed them last year. The flower is about as big as one's fingernail. It was windy, so I decided to embrace the wind rather than fight it. Thanks for looking. Comments are welcomed. (I'd love to know the name of this flower, if anyone knows.)

Hey Rick,
I really like the first one - composition, how the stems start soft in the corner and gets more defined, and just overall a great shot.

Nice set Rich - I especially like the softness of the first - composition of the third. I think these are a very early bulb - Scilla siberica, maybe.

Rich, good use of the wind. My favorite is #2.

Very nice embrace Rich. I like the ones from the back of the flower I think better with the strong line for composition.

Hi Rich, I like no 3 the best, looks like 2 flowers dancing in the wind. Also like the balance of contrast and color in that shot. Nicely shot and processed.

Pretty shots, even with the wind. Gives them a nice look. I also like the background color helps them stand out.

#1 is the cool. It has a modern impressionistic vibe.

Number 3 is the one for me. Nothing much in focus. I REALLY like that!

What LB did you use? Aperture?
