I didn't get the framing quite right with this - needed to leave a little more room at the top. I was aiming at a a gentle, delicate, dreamy effect, but feel I need to practice more to get the full effect I was after.

Post-processing - vignette; white layer reduced down to 20% and erased in the two front bells.

It sure is beautiful but looks more Victorian to me than the work of the Impressionists. Well, perhaps it could be in Renoir's turf.

Lovely combination of color. The bluebells look as fresh as the first spring on Earth.

A harsh reminder (to me) that spring isn't here yet. I like the softness and creamy colors.

Very gentle! I like the feeling of this image, like being in a garden in Spring. I think you're right, it would be a little more effective with a bit more space at top, to give the flowers (and the idea) room to breathe.
