I feel as if my gallery is filled with weird stuff, so here is something that is (relatively) 'normal'. ^^;

There's nothing much to say... other than the fact that I apologise to all those that live in the Northern Hemisphere. We won't see this for another couple of months yet. =/

I had a tree that used to blossom like that every spring and they cut it down! :sad:

Why did they cut it down? :(

Because they built a hideous wall and the tree was in the way.

Something I really like about this piece is how well the hues work together. It's also nice that a bit of white is in the background too, it brings the picture together and it's a nice transition from the upper left side to the other corner.
I feel as if the bottom right corner might be a little too empty though, leaving the piece unbalanced. Moving the camera a bit or cropping the photo it juuuust a little might help the composition in this case.

What made this piece stand out to me in the first place, is the light cathing only the blossoms in front, thus creating a little contrast and making them pop. With that being the main aspect of the piece, I think the title is well suited :)

Yes, I am with you there about the hues! They naturally go together very well. :nod:

I get what you mean with the unbalanced part. I did crop this piece already into a square. I could have moved the crop more to the left, but then it wouldn't have been as balanced in the top left corner. :hmm:

Thank you very much for your comment! :hug:

Cherry blossoms might be my favourite flowers, and it's lovely to see them in such a pretty shot.  I think the title is an endearing way to draw our attention to the light that inspired the work :nod:

As someone else noted, the depth of field in this photograph is enchanting; I think the shallowness perfectly accents the delicacy and character of the blooms in the focussed foreground.  Compositionally, it's great to see the rule of thirds working to create a very nice movement.  The saturation and contrast in this piece fully deploys the subtle palette to emphasise the exquisiteness of the petals.  And of course, the concentrated light on those few blooms creates a very nice effect.  Your use of natural illumination as a framing element is very compelling.

On the con-crit side, I'm not sure that I like the aspect ratio overly much.  I suspect it would have greater impact as a landscape shot (as well as inviting us to set it as wallpaper :D)  A portrait shot may also have been interesting in terms of enhancing a sense of focus.

I find your "weird stuff" very enjoyable but it's clear that you also have a knack for capturing more mainstream subjects with aplomb.  A beautiful subject executed very nicely. Great work! :love: :thumbsup:

Hey!

Thank you so much for your constructive comment! I really do appreciate it! This piece in particular is pretty old, but it's nice to hear something new about it every once in a while. :nod:

I do like my photographs to have a shallow depth of field. I do feel that it helps to produce certain effects that make things more appealing, though, of course, it depends on what subject you're taking a photo of.

I do have a landscape version, or rather, it was a landscape to begin with, but I cut it up into a square. :nod:

Thank you once again for the comment! :hug:
