Okay, third time posting this photo. As people were saying on the second page, the petals were a bit underexposed but the background shouldn't be exposed even more than it is. Tried using the dodge and burn tool, they worked out pretty well... I hope I just haven't gone ahead making it too bright, haha I tend to accidentally do extremeties while editing (second picture can be found here, hope you like the new one)

A definite improvement on the original. Just a thought but the background is a little busy and takes the eye away from the petals, not easy to find away to take this shot without them but as a general thing it always pays to double check whats behind the subject.

Cheers

I can see what Andy means, but when taking images of blossom in a tree there's not a lot you can do about the background (to be honest the tree doesn't bother me!). I really like the processing you've used on this image, it looks like a ray of sunshine has lit up the blooms!

Thank you guys!

Andy: it was either the trees, the cement ground, a building, or a road. I didn't think the other three would be very photogenic Smile

Lovely colours - isn't it a shame that they are only here for such a short time! Smile
