I haven't been home to take any more pictures, so I decided to share some of the ones I uploaded to iStock last night. These have all been resized for easy uploading to Vox. Last year, I thought the blooms on the crabapple tree were white. Now I realize that they all have a pink tint. This one probably has too much flare on the petal on the left hand side. It is washed out by the sunlight.
I like the way one little parachute is trying to escape in this shot. I increased the contrast so it would show up better against the dark background, then I softened the edges. This one may not be enough in focus for iStock.
I thought about submitting this one, but then I couldn't decide if I should leave in the fence post or edit it out, and if I should crop off the right side of the picture to move the bins more to the right edge of the shot or leave it the way it is. Any suggestions?
I have to leave for work in about 30 minutes. Still have a few more things I need to get done this morning. Some of the kids and their families are coming out on Sunday.
Happy Mother's Day to all my Vox neighbors who are mothers!
