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. =/

This is a beautiful photograph. The thing that catches my eye is the color contrast, the pink and white in the foreground and the pale blue sky makes the colors appealing to the eye. i think the flowers are a little bit too blurred on the bottom. The color adjustment smade the sky look a bit too teal at the top. On the bottom left there is an odd reddish color to the sky. Overall this is very pleasant to look at.

Thank you very much! I quite like the colour contrast and tonality myself.

Yes, a few people have remarked that the flowers are a bit blurred on the bottom. For my part, I typically like shallow depths of field, but it would have offered some further clarity if the flowers weren't blurred. :nod:

The bottom left may be a petal/part of the flower there, which would give a reddish hue to things. :P

Thank you for your comment!

I've taken quite a few pictures of flowers, and among them are cherry and plum blossoms. Very nice! I love the composition, with just the right amount of negative space. Did you adjust the red? I like how it brings out the subtle pink in the petals.

Blossoms are pretty awesome to take photos of. :nod:

I adjusted the overall hue, so all of the colours were affected slightly. They all moved along the spectrum a tiny bit. :P

Believe it or not, I am a lot less involved/busy in the community than I once was. :nod:

As for the work, it's that time of the month! I usually upload my artwork towards the end of the month, so you usually won't hear anything from me for the vast majority of the month prior to that. :P

Thank you for recently providing a substitute comment in Comment Tag, I really appreciate it!
You've made the flowers really stand out, and they are absolutely beautiful! I think the pink colours are lovely, and all of the little details are clear.
One thing I would say is that you may of blurred out the background a little too much, especially around the bottom of the blossoms. I would like it to be a bit clearer.
The sky also doesn't quite look right due to the colour adjustments, and I think it's because at the top it's a dull, bright blue, and then it suddenly changes to very bright. At the bottom the gradient is better.
Overall it's a magnificent picture with beauty and excellence, and your an amazing photographer!
Once again, thanks for going in my place for Comment Tag :)

Anytime!

Yes, I like the pink colours as well. :nod:

I don't post-process afterwards in terms of blur. Any blur is caused by the camera itself via shallow aperture. I also don't colour adjust to the extent that I darken one area while lighten another. I may have adjusted the hue overall, but that would have meant an overall change of the whole piece, not certain areas. I imagine it changes to very bright because of the clouds behind and the positioning of the sun/lighting.

Thank you for your comment! :hug:

Beautiful lighting on the flowers! I'm still waiting for my cherry blossom to put a show like this; right now it only has one or two flowers every spring. :D

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:
