Hi Nigel,

Some nice pink blossom always looks good after the winter months.

Nigel it looks a little dark which can be very easily altered in a few way's but the easiest is to use the "Shadows/Highlights" option. If you use PS go to "Image" > "Adjustments" > "Shadows/Highlights" or in Elements "Enhance" > "Adjust Lighting" > "Shadow/Highlights". These slider's do "what it say's on the tin" so to speak and and by making some slight adjustments it will bring the blossom out more. I would also be tempted to try a tighter crop on the right as aprt from the branch it appears to be empty space.

Both these adjustments have been made in the mod, see what you think

Take care
Martin

Nice image Nigel. I did a mod in PS and enhanced the shadows and highlights in camera raw, as well as boosting the vibrance slightly. Hope you like what I've done.
