Hello Akihisa,
This is just beautiful. Very good quality and composition with the flower and buds standing out against the OOF background with its pleasing colour. Well done.

Hi Akihisa,
What a sharp white blossom witth such play with light and shadows.
Great use of shallow focusing on the flower and the two buds. A lovely bokeh BG to compliment.
Well done,

Love the POV on this image. The lone blossom is awesome. Very well done. The dof is what makes this image work.


Hi Akihisa,
Lovely composition and sharp apricot with blurred BG.Great!

Ah, sign of spring and a beautiful symbol that is captured well! Great use of the dof to isolate the flower and the buds. Very nice colors. Well done, tfs.

A lovely capture from an apricot blossoms, Akihisa-san!

Great focus on its heart and perfect control on the exposure.
The sharpness and DOF are well done, and contrast between the uniform blurry BG and the soft colored beautiful flower is amazing.

Thanks for sharing such a pleasing shot.
