We’ve had a banner year for blossoming trees!

One of my favorite techniques for capturing blossoms is to overexpose a little bit, and use an overcast sky as background.

Using Split Toning (in Lightroom) gives them a very different look. Although I’m partial to the color version, this B&W might be better for decorating.
