Hello Bob,
A kind of picture I love, the play of light in grasses. What a beautiful and fine sight! There is always something heavenly in these natural scenes.
For me a message of hope and kindness.
Thanks so much.
All the best for 2010
Kind regards
Anne

Hi Bob,
A striking photo with the most beautiful colors and light. I love the DOF a lot since it adds great depth to the photo. I am not too sure about the green twig though. I think a completely yellow/brown composition would work better.
TFS,
Niek

Here's wishing you, Jane and the family a very Happy New Year, Bob!
A stunning shot with beautiful golden grass!
Bravo!

Hello Bob,
A very beautiful view of these grasses against the brown background - certainly the most beautiful fireworks this year! Although I expect they're now covered by snow!
TFS and take care! Kind regards, Ulla

Hi Bob,

When I saw the thumbnail I expected to find fireworks when I clicked on it. They do look like fireworks - only natural ones - not set off by man. A beautiful picture that shouts out "Happy New Year." Very clever and artistic.

Hello Bob,
Love the way the light shines through the seed pods. Beautiful hues of browns and tans with just a hint of green to add contrast. Nicely composed with very fine detail and DOF.

Hello Bob,

Hello Bob,
How come I missed this great shot by you. An excellent close up of gold field with brilliant composition, POV & luminosity. Thanks for sharing & of course, belated Happy New Year 2010 through this channel.
Regards : Subhash
PS: An observation by me, you are keeping yourself little off from TN, trust all is well?

Hi Bob, I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you, along with many other TN members. I did hear today that you are starting to improve and I'm wishing you a speedy recovery.
Take care my friend.
Janice
