Pat...your photography is improving all the time! Nice straight edge against the left frame, no blown highlights, beautiful color, lovely composition....well done! #704397

Thank you, Ellen and Dolores!

Dolores: thank you so much for the compliments on my photo. I have been working very hard lately taking the BP on-line classes and working on a Nature Photography Certificate at Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL. The classes at the Arb do a lot of group shooting and critiquing, so I'm getting all the photo techniques drilled in my head from all angles! And, it is finally working. Also, this photo was not cropped or straightened in PS. I actually got it right in the camera!! I also got a new pistol grip ball head that is a big help positioning the camera. #704411

You've done a superb job on this image, Pat. Love the colors, and BG as well, and the blossoms' colors really stand out in the green! Super!
