This photograph was taken from an Apricot tree in my garden .
Thank you all for your votes and comments in my last upload which are all appreciated a lot.
Thought you'd been in my garden and grabbed a couple of shots, George . Such beautiful blossom, and very well captured and presented. Carol
A great macro shot, well captured
Wonderful to see fruit blossom.... still very dormant here.
Beautiful blosson and superb macro. Love the colours of this delicate flower.
Wonderful Image! Well captured!!
Super detail in both shots George , well done....John
Two great images George, really like them
Am I right to suspect that version 1 is a crop of version 2? When I saw version 1 from the thumbnail picture I thought that the flowers stem out from that little stem on their left which points at the flowers. Closer look and I realised I was mistaken. I understand little of tree keeping so I don't lnow why this stem that looks lifeless now, is kept on the tree, but keep watering the tree as the flowers proving its living. I am not sure if a digital "treekeeping" would do some good to picture number 1, it shouldn't work on version 2. But you can try it!
Another point I would like to mention refers to colour. The white flower stems on the white petals background don't make the impact the white stems make on the pink(?) petals exactly behind the white flower you have photographed. Between the two I would have chosen to photograph teh flower at teh back, but being your garden you know better if that it would be nice to be photographed. The most important is that the fruits grow nicely without any protein food inside them.
have a lovely sprimg
spring I wanted to type
Very pretty images
Thank you for your comments. Concerning your first question I have indeed cropped V2 to V1. Furthermore I would like to explain to you the difference between the white flowers and the pink : Apricot tree's blossom at first steps is coming pink and as the petals getting grow and opening the color is changing and transforming to white. In this step the Apricot flower get its best presentation, so I thought that would be the best step of its growth to be photographed. Anyway I always believe that there is always more than one idea for treating a photograph and I assure you that I will give it a try following your recommendations .
I would like to wish you also all the best for the Spring !
A real beauty.
When the apricots starts blooming you can know for sure Spring is around the corner Great images George !!
Great images George
Two splendid delightful captures George!!!
This is very beautiful. I think I prefer v2, I like the background and DOF that you have achieved here.
An excellent macro shot of this beautiful blossom, George!
A great macro shot
