Beautiful image and perspective, Darren!!! I love shooting dogwood too, but I think they are difficult to shoot! Looks like you aren't having any problems with them!

We don't see many pink/red dogwoods. We see more of the white variety. This photo is simply incredible. Love the perspective, love the blue, and love the dark pink flowers.
