Hi Ryszard

A couple of days of rain & wind & all the blossoms in China are now gone, so nice to see them again here. The Chinese also shake the trees to see the 'rain' shower of blossoms. Good sharpness & shallow dof. Tfs!

Hi Ryszard,
That's a splendid Spring shot with these blossoms quite abundant on this branch of tree. Perfect details in the flowers and the perfect lighting to produce such accurately exposed result.
Very neat work with good use of shallow DOF and a glorious bokeh BG to isolate the flowers and rendering a 3D effect.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Ryszard.

Complimentary tones here of blossom and background, Perfect balance of clarity, softness and positioning. I like the amount of blooms and the angle. TFS

I love this photo, superb lighting and colors.
Excellent sharpness and focus on the blossoms that are highlighted with a nice bg which is a complementary color.

Bom dia Ryszard,

Tempo de flores e de muita beleza, beleza esta que você captou nessa fotografia, cujos elementos principais chamam a atenção pela harmonia entre si.

O ponto de vista, excelente; o foco mostra com nitidez as belas flores; a luz, valoriza as cores dela, destacando-as, bem como as cores, belíssimas. Por fim, contraste e segundo plano fecham o trabalho com chave de ouro, destacando o bonito galho florido.

Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Bonjour Ryszard,
Jolie branche fleurie très fine se détachant superbement sur un bokeh joliment travaillé...

Ciao Ryszard, delicate composition with lovely flowers, splendid light, beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Ryszard,

You've used the shallow DOF to your advantage and also selected a good background for your composition. It might be good to choose a tighter crop and clone out the partial flower to the right, but this is nicely taken.


Love the mood you have caught in this floral posting, Ryszard!
Great Spring season shot with superb details.
The colors are natural and POV are excellent.
Nice work!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Ryszard,
That lovely and beautiful!!
nice tone of colors with lovely contrast and light,
Beautiful Bokeh of this branches trees with flowers,
Perfect details and sharp presentation.
Very well done and beautiful colored background too..

This looks like a crab apple tree with white flowers. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Excellent lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Ryszard, this is an excellent macro of the blossom and such a beautiful bokeh too, well done.
I like everything about this shot,keep up the good work!
Regards Jean.
