Walking down the street

While Jess was at Cub Scouts on Wednesday I took a walk down the street with our camera seeing what there was to see. The lighting wasn't particularly good, but I got a few decent shots.

Something is still bothering me about this shot, but I can't put my finger on it. There is some chromatic aberration towards the edges, but I don't think that's the main thing bothering me. I usually don't notice chromatic aberration very much because my glasses have always had substantial chromatic aberration, so it's basically how I see the world.
IMGP4246a_sThe depth of field was too short on this one, so I applied an oil-painting effect which I think came out pretty well.
IMGP4253a_sThis image had some depth-of-field issues as well. The main line of 4 blossoms is slightly out of focus. You can't really tell scaled down to this small size though. Regardless, I applied the oil painting effect (on the right), but I think scaled down I like them both. The one on the right has a calmer mood though. The one on the left might actually work well enough for a nature category but I think I would enjoy having the one on the right hanging on my wall more.
