Title • cotton lavender

I'm not overy impressed with this shot. I like the colours, and the generally muted feel, but the focus is a little too confusing. Ideally I would have liked a more clearly defined plane of focus – blurred foreground, focus, blurred background – as I think this would have made for a stronger image, but it didn't quite work out.

But this is another of shots I've taken recently documenting our house (well, garden) before we move, so I'm not quite so bothered that it isn't perfect.

Oh, and I was really pleased yesterday to be awarded a noteworthy for my entry for the Photo Friday Landscape challenge, not least because it's my current favourite shot (my other favourites are now in my portfolio category), but also because there were 530 entries. So many thanks to everyone who voted :-)

And finally, I'm now in Bristol (UK) for the next couple of days and will be in London on Thursday evening and Friday, so posting times may vary, or may not manage to get anything up at all. I'll be back home on Friday, and hopefully will have managed to take something reasonable while I'm away to put up over the weekend. Do keep commenting though, and I'll respond when I get home.
