My Contribution to this Waking Spring by WishmasterAlchemist

Waking Spring

We inhabitants of the Northern Hemisphere are all longing for spring by now, right? Well, here is a preview that is actually from last year, taken when spring hadn't officially begun yet, but I just couldn't wait any longer to get it published.

This is Blackthorn that grows spontaneously in the woods area of the countryside where I live. It is pretty common to come across and can be recognized for its snow white blossoms in early spring and for its small, blue fruits between September and October.

I got a crisp capture of this early blossom from a low limb and was mainly concerned with not burning out detail spots in the white petals. Once on the computer, I cropped my photo square, added brightness, and selectively corrected the colours to keep the tones pastel-like and safely away from oversaturation. The most work was done on the cyan blue colour of the sky.
