I set myself a challenge this week - to use manual focus for my everyday images.  You'll notice there are no pictures of people - too prone to movement!  Lots going in the garden though, and the kind of weather you can spend however long it takes to figure the focus out!  I think Saturday and Sunday are my joint images of the week - no photo manipulation at all, but both very effective shots I think.  The colours are great on Saturday, and I was really proud of the definition of the flower and the contrast with the textured background (of the garden chair).  Then the spiny tentrils left from the cherry blossom on Sunday - the delicacy of those stems, splayed out with their pollen heavy heads - just beautiful.  So, linking up with Truly Madly Kids as usual, for Image Of The Week - it's a lovely friendly group of regulars and easy peasy to join in, any way you like.

  1. Oh my gosh! These are all stunning - and well done for only using manual! I love the coloured house and also Saturday's shot - I can't decide! Thank you so much for linking up to #iotw

    1. A big step for me! Don't think I could ever do it when I was shooting the kids though - they move too damn quick!
