    So finally decided that its time to go see the blossoms. I have personally never been before. Unfortunately the weather and atmosphere was not that great, overcast skys, thousands of people, screaming kids...

    I have never heard so many auto focus beeps and shutters in my life.. Anywho, on with the pictures..

    Nice job. I like how you focused on details. I like the composition on #7 and would like to see it in color. Well done!

    Fourth and tenth ones are stellar! 3rd and 6th could benefit from stopping down a bit.

    Looks great. Not so sure about the BW ones, partially because I think the color is one of the main aspects of these, but personal preference there.

    Thanks, I think I prefer the color but both have appeal!

    Great shots, I saw these in the 75mm and 17mm lens threads and really enjoyed them. These and another set taken by a friend of mine made me want to go see the D.C. cherry blossoms, but it sounds like the atmosphere might be lacking :biggrin:

    I was just about to start a Cherry Blossoms thread for others to share when I saw you'd posted up a thread of your set from D.C. also. I guess I'll still do a thread to encourage other people to post theirs too, hope you'll share a few of your favorites too!
