Cherry Blossom

It is that wonderful cherry blossom (sakura in Japanese) time of year!  This little gem was growing, of all places, on a lovely little tree in East Falls underneath the Roosevelt Expressway!  I used my shutterbug syndrome enabler, the G7, to snap the flower.  Post-processing was done to transform the photo into HDR-style and to bring out the details in the petals!

      I’m glad you like the soft focus. I was a little unsure about it. I forgot to check my camera settings before I snapped it and the ISO was set to 800 and the picture was a little grainy and soft looking (its amazing how camera settings get completely changed inside a purse). Luckily, Photoshop took away the graininess and I was just left with the softness. Its seemed okay and semi post-worthy, but I just wasn’t sure about it. Thus, I greatly appreciate your positive feedback on it!
