Saturday morning in the country

I haven't been home to take any more pictures, so I decided to share some of the ones I uploaded to iStock last night.  These have all been resized for easy uploading to Vox.  Last year, I thought the blooms on the crabapple tree were white.  Now I realize that they all have a pink tint.  This one probably has too much flare on the petal on the left hand side.  It is washed out by the sunlight. 

 

I like the way one little parachute is trying to escape in this shot.  I increased the contrast so it would show up better against the dark background, then I softened the edges.  This one may not be enough in focus for iStock.

 

I thought about submitting this one, but then I couldn't decide if I should leave in the fence post or edit it out, and if I should crop off the right side of the picture to move the bins more to the right edge of the shot or leave it the way it is.  Any suggestions? 

I have to leave for work in about 30 minutes.  Still have a few more things I need to get done this morning.  Some of the kids and their families are coming out on Sunday. 

Happy Mother's Day to all my Vox neighbors who are mothers!

    I would crop off the fence post because it is sort of distracting. My eye wants to go to the silos but the post sort of draws me away. I love the silos!

  2. I think you are right. Good idea! Thanks, Emjay!
