With the National Cherry Blossoms are doubt this year due to a late snow storm that may have wiped them out. No one knows for sure but the cold spell is not fun this late in the year.
I shot this last year during when the cherry blossoms were blooming. It really isn’t balanced which is why I didn’t publish it. The branches domain at the left side and there is a big empty space on the top left. The Jefferson Memorial helps balance is somewhat but there isn’t a lot I can do about it. Still, I thought with the likely loss of all the blossoms this year I might as well publish it and give a break from all the beach shots I have been doing. Maybe I’ll even edit some more recent stuff I have been sitting on.
Straightforward edit when I went to do this. Nothing overly special and I put in the curves adjustment. Did a bit of dodging and burning but that was all. I felt it was missing just a bit of pop so masked in from Intensify CK at a very low opacity just to give it some pop and then called it a day.
