Very nice John: until you posted the third, I was puzzled by how you could get the effects shown in camera (well, those you showed, anyway). I love the rowan (?) tree with berries - very nice to contemplate on the coldest, bleakest day of the year. And the motion blur trunks are very pleasing - I think it is an excellent way to simplify the disorder of a forest to a harmonious result.
Thank you Lois.
The first is a sandwich of two images. So I meant they were done in-camera and combined. One is of out of focus apples superimposed on the orchard. No masking, though one day I will learn the technique.
The second is also a sandwich of one in focus and one very slightly out of focus shot of an American Ash and berries in autumn.
The third is a pan shot with a touch of unsharp mask. It acts like a high contrast application.
And here is one more; not your usual beauty, rather skeletal remains of sumac on a hill, which I think has its own beauty.
