Really great timing to go out with the sun setting, to realize what kind of light to capture what you desire is something one really needs. You did this well. Along with the great composition in which there's nothing to distract you from the subject. Nice work with keeping the tight composition as well, making the negative space really pop out your subject.

As for tones it's beautiful, but I'd like to know what you did in Photoshop with it. I can't but help wonder what this looks like without any photoshoping what-so-ever. Otherwise, it is truly beautiful and I love it.

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the coloring, and lighting. The flowers are amazing.

I do wish, however, that you would tell us what you did in photoshop. It's always nice to know how the photo is changed.

The only slight thing I noticed, was also that I'm not sure I like the focus. I can't really tell what's wrong with it, other than being slightly blurry. But that might just be a trick of my computer displaying it?

I think it's because there is a flower in the background that is very blurry, but that should just be to draw focus to the flower we want to see? I don't rightly know why I think it's not clear overall.

But overall, the piece is stunning and beautiful.

I love cherry blossoms they always make us feel happier, maybe it's their soft delicate colours or their beauty. Regardless, this is a beautiful capture of a much admired flower. :aww: :love:

We have a place here it's a Chinese 'theatre' (ie touristy kind of thing) - but the road from the main road to the place is lined with Cherry Trees... it's an amazing place.
