some pleasantly strong colours to appreciate here, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush - as you see, it was a beautifully fine day.
Lovely color and clarity!
Tom Wilson: Thanks Elizabeth - the lens delivers pretty crisp images when you get the focus right smile
Joli parterre de fleurs très coloré.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
BOLD colours Tom, a nice walk.

A riot of color!
Tom Wilson: The Gardens are great at this time of year.
Is it you or the lens that is producing such saturated colours Tom?
Tom Wilson: A mixture of the two, I think, Bill - I made a modest saturation boost, but the colours are real.

That are some wonderful colours here, Tom. I wonder what your reply is to Bill about the colours.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid - my response to Bill: A mixture of the two, I think, Bill - I made a modest saturation boost, but the colours are real.

This picture shouts 'spring!'. Seems to me that the 25mm is doing its job.
Tom Wilson: And spring it certainly is smile And for £70 the lens does quite a remarkable job! As one reviewer said, that's six lunches at Macdonalds smile

So colourful - just as a park should be
Tom Wilson: Yes, it is well planted. It was in a sorry state for years as a result of lack of funds, then the Friends of the BG got a lottery grant to restore it to its early 20th century state, and re-do the glasshouses - most of the work is now done by volunteers, whereas 50 years ago there were fifteen gardeners and a dozen apprentices!
Intense colour here. Nice flower bed with such a variety of annuals.
Tom Wilson: The Gardens look great in the sprintime.
It is a lovely parkland area Tom, I'm assuming this must be somewhere in Sheffield.
Tom Wilson: It's the Botanical Gardens, Brian - about five mins walk from my house smile
A vibrant image, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Martin
