This series aims to capture glimpses of the colours and shapes of this spring. Here are some early cherry blossoms, and cherry twigs reaching for the sky.
Beautiful... I love how the flowers stand out in the overcast day.

Terrific. Pink and gray go very well together. Like the square composition.

I'll miss the Cherry Blossoms this year since we moved, but that's okay, GA has plenty of other pretty trees to admire : )

Gorgeous. Love the tones and the dof. I even like the border...it really adds to the image. Very well done!

Great composition and DoF, and you made a excellent image in what was probably challenging lighting. Well done!!

@Paul: I use a plugin called 'frame it' with Photoshop Elements. You can define thousands of different frame styles. I use Photoshop to do most of my editing, but then copy/paste the image into elements to add the frame. This plugin is called 'Essentials2'. Its remarkably cheap too, you can find it here http://www.ononesoftware.com/
very nice colors i like this very much
