Glorious Shad Blossoms by Anita Pollak

Oh, our shad tree is in full bloom and the blossoms are just magnificent when they are backlit by the late afternoon/early evening light. Of course the light breeze made shooting challenging, but I was out there day after day trying to get a shot that captured their beauty. This is as close as I’ve been able to come!

Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.

I made some adjustments to increase contrast so the flowers would really pop and I added Gateaux from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures to finish it off.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    The bright, backlit flowers and stems show beautifully against the muted background!

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments and the fave, Celeste! I was tempted (as usual) to try Topaz Simplify and some other manipulations and perhaps more texture, but I decided it worked best this way. Of course, I will probably try another version with more manipulation….
