Soft Focus Fisheye Images — Early Cherry Blossom

Soft Fisheye Cherry Blossome-(1)A09A2447-001

This Cherry opens its flowers much early than most of the others (Somei-yoshino variety),

so that, I think this is the Yama-zakura (Mountain Cherry) which is the same variety, 

I posted the photos before as [ Early Cherry Blossom ],  last year.

Soft-Fisheye Cerry-Blossome-(2)A09A2453-001

I wanted to photograph this flowers like fire-fly floating in the air.  Hence, use of  soft focus lens,

and a flash-light under the dim evening sky.   So, I put soft filter onto my Fish-eye lens though,

the effect was not enough. = I may need to try again with different tactics.  🙂

      Thank you very much Karen.
      Over here, only past two days were warm and bright.
      Before, it has been exceptionally cold. Thanks goodness spring has come at last. 🙂

      I like you said this Elena.
      I think this image has somewhat common psyche with
      your B/W photo of an entangled bush over the pond.

    Very nice. I think you’re getting closer to what you’re aiming for. The effect is very nice here.

      Thank you Lemony.
      I’m waiting this tree has more flowers though, as it is Yamazakura,
      the leaves are growing as well. 🙂
