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. =/

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:
