[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ume(plum) trees blossom in mid-February. The flowers smell very sweet telling us the coming of spring. That means...it's about time for me to take off my coat and shoot more photos!

I like your composition, but I think it's slightly overexposed. The detail in the flowers are lost. Can you darken the entire shot to bring out that detail? If you shot in RAW format, you should be able to adjust the exposure down just as if you were re-taking the photo.

If that's not possible, in the future try to take a light meter reading from the brightest element of your photo and set the exposure that way.

I really like your composition and depth of field. I hope this note is helpful.


Fully in agreement with Cantorboi : a good picture, almost a painting, but overexposed to a degree. I have posted a workshop, showing some mean of improving. You should get better results from the original, though. And in any case, it is better, as suggested, to get the picture right first time. Hope to see more from you in the future.
