!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Blooming Trees(s)

This challenge closed about 5 years ago.

The Challenge

It’s April, so let’s see the new photos of new bloom. At least one tree trunk must be visible, and that tree’s flowers must be visible as well – see photo on the right, here.

Edit: At least some branches should be visible if not the whole trunk, I appreciate the blooms are more appealing than the whole tree, but I don’t want just macros of flowers with no context – we’ll leave those for a different challenge.

The sunnier, the better.

Another edit: As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)
