  • Washington DC Cherry Blossoms


    This is taken on one of the peak Cherry Blossom days - on March 23, 2012 using Nikon D40 camera. Submitting it for "Best shot in 2012" contest. It is one of the best shots for me for 1. Its close to natural colors and taken in natural light, 2. Right combination of focused flowers and faded flowers giving it further beauty I guess. 3. Other than cropping, no other post editing done. 4. The flower stem dropping down from left top to the right bottom of screen giving a destination / orientation to the viewer.

      Its nice work. Use the healing brush to take out that sensor spot.

        I did not notice the small spot on the lens which caused the spot.
