The cherry blossoms are a surprisingly difficult subject: it's hard to take a bad picture of the trees, but it's even harder to take a good one. Here is my attempt to at least avoid a bad picture.
GJC, this is such a beautiful picture! Well-framed, nice dof and so soothing to see.

Bad pic? No! You managed to combine the blossoms with an interesting background. Good!

So beautiful. It makes me think of wedding garlands for some reason. Don't know why.

This is such a gorgeous composition! Full of light and wonder...absolutlely beautiful!

I imagine it must be hard to do an extraordinariy picture of these flowers. If I may...ideally all the background should be dark like in the left. Anyway it's a fresh and light picture. I like it.

Couldn't agree more about trying to take "good" pics of the sakura - it's extremely difficult. I like what you've done here - having another element in the shot in the bakground to make it about more than the tree. Beautiful light and colour in this, an very calming scene.

Beautiful composition. Love the light!
11 Apr 2009 6:52pm
I think you were succesful--I love this picture. It is different and original, and GOOD.

Excellent picture of cherry blossoms and light in the background. I love it.

so beautiful - especially on the left where the cherry blossoms stand out so well on the black background. could look at this one for a very long time. (today's post shows more of what grows at the Self Realization Garden)

Wow! This is really a superb shot... I simply love the DoF.
12 Apr 2009 4:33am
Gorgeous. The blossoms look so delicate and I like the composition with the roof at the back to give it a sense of place.
12 Apr 2009 4:46am
great choice of dof and frame, i love that pic
12 Apr 2009 7:24am
This is just spectacular! Beautiful shot in every way...

… and it's much harder to take one as wonderful as this! I especially love the movement of the blossoms.

Wonderful! This is my wife's favorite temple in Kyoto.
12 Apr 2009 10:13pm
so well done!
12 Apr 2009 10:23pm
Beautiful colors, great DOF, and lovely composition most definitely. Feels like I am standing in the flowers. Great shot.

I like the way you captured the shidarezakura against the wall of the temple! It is a most natural manner of shooting such an image....no other background is necessary!
17 Apr 2009 12:18pm
I love it. So delicate the foliage and so strong the architecture.
