When did this section get added?

Hey, here are some timely shots from Fate, and the Harbor in Rockwall (from last year's snowfall).

Oh..... 'bout a year ago. ;-)

I like the first one with the railroad tracks. Not sure I'm totally sold on the blurred perimeter, but I like the composition/contents.

Is that just an uber-wide f/stop, like 1.4 or post-processing for the blur?

Yes, and also a wet lens... wiped it down as much as possible (photo 1).

#1
like comp and subject. just a little too soft for my taste.
#2
can't decided if it's a weird angle shot or something tipped over
#3 and #4
like the white snow in contrast to the colors. The foreground blurred bits seem to detract, rather than add to the comp for me. I like the stark crispness of the objects in the background and how the snow adds to that. I think the blurred foreground branches would be better if they didn't so heavily "frame" the subject.
