Blossoms And Jefferson

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.

Enjoy.

  1. The Tidal Basin is a partially man-made reservoir between the Potomac River and the Washington Channel in Washington, D.C. It is part of West Potomac Park and is a focal point of the National Cherry Blossom Festival held each spring. It is nice you have shared this photo with your followers since the snow storm may have destroyed the beautiful blossoms for this year. The flowers in the Spring in the Washington, DC area are most beautiful. I enjoyed.
