What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? This set basically shows my first attempt on shooting the intimate landscape.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? I tried to create a shallow depth of field by using the biggest focal length, backing a few steps up an a big f-stop, since the background wasn't really helping the pictures.

I especially like your picture of the trees. It's got a nice rhythm and a calm, serene feel about it. You seem to like photographing towards the sun. I like that as well. It often produces beautiful colours as in your second picture or a slightly mysterious atmosphere as in the photo with the lone leave. Well done! Keep on posting.

Wow, your pictures are really great! They are full of atmosphere!

This is a very moody, unusual photo. The shallow depth of feld and the flare from the sun are interesting and add much to the image. A challenge you are facing is that the leaves at the left are overlapping some dark shapes in the background (out of focus trees) in such a way that the same tones match and so make the leaves and background tie together in an uncomfortable way. If you were to move enough to get the leaves separated from that dark shape (even though it is a tree, more important to the composition, it is a dark shape), the leavers would be more dominant (the dark shapes to the right are not as dark and so would contrast with the leaves).
