Hello Julie,

Very beautiful winter scene with wonderful contrast between the red and the white!
Excellent background!
Great POV, light, contrast and sharpness!
Congratulations and TFS

Hi Julie,

Wow, what a splendid composition!
For me, it can also be a potential artwork, my friend!
Great colors, nice POV and perfect sharpness with freshly lying snow, gives nice contrast to the subject.

Well spotted!

best wishes,

Hi Julie

Like the contrast from the bright red cherry against the grey / white background.
A simple shot but very effective.

Regards Derek

Hi Julie,
What a sweet capture of this cherry carrying a nice heap of snow flakes!
A very good interpretation of Winter in this original way!
A very eye-catching composition in its minimal way, yet very artistic.
Excellent lighting and great management in exposure.
Best regards,

Hello Julie

Amazing capture here with the cherry. The isolation with the DOf is excellent. Nice work

Hi Julie,

The contrast of the bright red cherry and snow are nicely captured. Excellent control of your settings, the ice crystals are well defined. Enjoy your trip down south and the warmth!

Warm regards,

Simple and well done, dear Julie.
Great sharpness and wonderful red color.
Lovely details and nice framing.
Congratulations and TFS, Julie.

Warm regards,

Hello, Julie -
Great one! The bright red cherry is shown sharply with all of its glossy contours, looking great against the stark while of the snow and shiny jet black of the wet branch. The composition is complimented by the long portrait format. Great eye to see and capture this one.

Hello Julie
Wonderful capture this lovely winter shot!
Colors and contrast are amazing!

A single splash of bright red against the grim colour of winter really helps this shot to stand out well.. Nicely done - nice narrow DOF focused on the rather freeze dried cherry..

Nice pic

Poor, forgotten cherry-tree,

This formulation pleases me,

My best wishes.
