[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I got this shot of a blossoming chestnut tree beside Lake Osoyoos this morning as the sun was rising. The early sunlight shing on the tree and FG grass, while the BG mountian was still in the dark made for a great contrast shot.
The sky was a bit tough to get right with the bright FG, but a bit of added colour and contrast helped. Converted from RAW with heightened colour balance to 7000deg with added sarpness and saturation.

Great composition, good use of light and shadows.

Wow, this is a fantastic shot ! The light is great, and the dark clouds give some dramatic mood to the picture. Excellent sharpness and details, wonderful colors and very nice POV. Very wel done !
