[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Although at a quick glance they look to be in bloom right now, my neighbor's cherry blossom trees are encased in ice. We must wait a few weeks for them to emerge in their full glory.

PP work--selectively saturated the colors in the sky, and added highlights only to the cherry blossom trees. Resized, framed, and sharpened for TL.

Hi Karen, nicely composed photo of the cherry blossom trees, certainly looks very cool. I do like your sky, with its soft colours.

Well done to you.

Cheers Dawn

Hello Karen,
Even the railings are covered with the ice, I will think driving conditions were not the bast right after this rainfall..!
Impressive details are captured, and the composition is good with emphasis on the trees!

Excellent compo and framing. I like the shining golden sky and those white, frost covered trees.

Looks lovely, but I bet you were all concerned about the frost! Great ambiance here.

Hi Karen ,
I find this photo very attractive and very strong in their simplicity. The light is superb and created beautiful effect all over the snowy trees. Well done.
