    Ok, this is my first time posting in the technique section. This isn't a great photo, but I do feel it gives the feeling of spring. I want to reshoot this, but the weather sure doesn't seem to want to cooperate.

    I dislike the dark shadow on her face and I think it's too pinky or orangy or something, but I keep trying to adjust it and it ends up worse. But I love the innocence of her picking up the easter eggs.

    Thank you for your entry! thumb.gif
    I guess Easter is a spring time holiday:-) :D

    An early cherry tree bloom...
    I take lots of pictures--sometimes I make a photograph.

    OK, shot last Sunday:

    I like this photo too-- there's something about yellow flowers and blue sky that just feels good. I love sunflower pics like this too-- but we'll have to wait a few months for that!

    correct
    You are correct. They are planted on the state capitol grounds just outside of my office. I took this one on a lunch break.

    Spring comes slowly here. The white of the Blackthorn blossom is always the beginning of spring. Promising good things for making sloe gin after the frost in the winter. There is always a late frost which takes most of the early blosssom making the sloes are harder to find.

    Proper sloe gin should be made with Plymouth Gin rather than London Gin but I prefer using vodka to Gin

    So here is the start of spring, the start of sloe gin making, the start of my ski holiday hip flask. All good things start with white blossom...

    Thanks Nik, It might be worth a re-shoot when the sun plays ball. This one was taken at lunch time in very flat light

    Did you notice the position of the lover's legs and the form of the branches of the tree ?

    This photo reminds me my own picture ...

    Well done Jeff. thumb.gif

    Thanks for the nice compliments! :D

    I included the tree in the frame because I felt like it balanced things out better. Honestly, I hadn't noticed the similarities in the branches and legs, but now I love it even more. Great observation!

    Thanks. They are both just fortunate use of midday sun. I underexposed the poppies to preserve color and the green just vanished into the shadows which suited me fine for the shot. The Camilias in the background of the lilys are just naturally a dark plant, and the sun was shining nearly directly down the gullet of the lilies which made them glow. The lilies are in my garden so I plan more shots of them before they fade.

    I have been doing too much of the high contrast light lately. I'm going to have to start doing something else before I get type-cast.
