Half and half (2 photos)

This week’s photo challenge is half and half.  The first photo I have chosen is one I took earlier this year on a visit to Acorn Bank.  The trees in the photo are half seen directly and half reflected in a pool of water.  It is rather a busy photo, but my eye is drawn to the top half or the bottom half.

Another photo where two subjects compete for attention is one I took at Talkin Tarn.  The tree in blossom and the view make me look from side to side like a spectator at a tennis match.

Vivid (3 photos)

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is Vivid.  I have picked out three photos.

Two have some bright colours both manmade and natural.  The third is a flowering plant.  It is included in a book of wild flowers, although in Britain it is mainly grown in gardens, being native to some mainland European countries.

The recycling skips with a field of oilseed rape in the background have bright colours.
Can you see the sheep?

The perennial cornflower has vivid colours and is my favourite of these photos.  Do you agree?
