Early blooms make for early snapshots...

First some sand cherry blossoms

17656 17657


Same sand cherry, but I 'pushed' the processing to give it an impressionistic flair.

17658

A flowering almond

17659

A regular cherry tree. If we can beat the birds to these in a few weeks it will make some good jelly!

17660

Finally, a lilac...

17661

Hi, Terry. I'm especially impressed with the series of your sand cherry blossoms because of the cloudy effect you implemented in background (Monet would be proud) and then very slightly in the forefront. This brings out the stunning vibrancy.

Especially, in this piece the blossoms appear to be realized by elegant brush strokes.

Though the Flowering Almond seems to be favored here, to my eye the faint resolution on the bottom overly contrasts top of image. Beautiful, nevertheless.

I'm partial to Lilacs. They remind me of happy days in my youth. The scent always brings me back there! Just lovely.

Thank you all, very much. The lens I used has very shallow depth-of-field, so it is easy to get the out of focus areas in front of, and behind, my subject. Unfortunately the day was breezy (and I was hand holding my camera rather than using a tripod) so the in-focus areas are not quite as sharp as I would like.

These are lovely! I think my favorite are the sand cherry blossoms. The colors are so beautiful and the contrasts work really well.

The color and texture of flowers really capture my imagination when I have a camera in my hands. Thanks!

Thanks, jackjohn. I'm glad you like them. These were taken in my back yard early this spring.
