Dear All,

Finally, Spring has started showing the signs of its existence in this part of the world, and I tried to catch the feelings these blossoms are conveying through the core of their heart.

Here, I gave my best to capture the beauty of these pure white blossoms against a partially blue sky. The Sun was playing hide-and-seek for that moment and I felt the tenderness and charm these flowers were spreading allover.

Hope you enjoy the Spring scene here.

Seasonal greetings,

Hi Paras

Good exposure on the highlights with nice repletion of the bg circles of confusion in the oof bg. A subtle warm cold colour contrast between the yellow green leaf & the blue tinged bg, especially at right. Tfs!

Amazing image very well done. A nice POV and shallow DOF, rafined colors. Lovely bokeh.

Hi Paras,
What precise details in these white blossoms. I like the diffused lighting which helped to produce this stunning even exposure all over!
The POV is magnificent and the bokeh BG is enhancing the composition. The green leaves completes this beautiful floral presentation.
My best regards,

I'm glad you're finally getting spring, spring skip Las Vegas this year while some parts of the city hit 100 degrees F yesterday. Awesome capture of those flowers. Good use of the dof. Sharp details and good lighting. Well done, tfs.


Spring is difficult these days, lots of rain ....
I really like the light that sets the ambiance.
Beautiful bokeh too that highlights this jewel.
Excellent work !

Hello Paras, once again you give us a shot that is so 3 dimensional, brilliant work.
Fantastic clarity on the blossom and a beautiful bokeh, what more could we ask for?
Keep up the good work, these are the type of shots that you do best.
Regards Jean.

Ciao Paras, lovely composition with beautiful flowers, fantastic blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Paras,

An incredible CU macro of these white blossoms with a remarkable bokeh background.
Your lighting is well handled. I might go for a little bit of a lower POV, to look into the heart of the flower, but that's just my opinion :)
Very nice work and TFS.


Your best is certainly good enough and evidenced by the pure white and clarity set against a nice brokeh. Nice job

Hi Paras
Beautiful white Spring! superb natural colors and contrast between the white blossom color and the blurred BG.

Bonjour Paras,
Le printemps est bien arrivé sur notre planète terre...
Aucun doute là dessus, je ne sais pas si le soleil est généreux chez toi, en France il a du mal à montrer le bout de son nez!!!!!
Ce bouquet de petites fleurs est superbe avec cette blancheur immaculée...
Les crises seront certainement délicieuses, si la pluie s'arrête pour laisser place au soleil...

Hi Paras
fascinating spring blossoms. the white delicate flowers are so pretty in their natural composition on a tree brunch. incredible clarity of every flower. perfect upwards perspective. amazing bokeh BG.
