Another picture taken this weekend in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. I wanted to capture the first blooming trees, the hot pink against the azure sky and the naked lace-like tree in the background.
I took about a dozen of that same view, trying out the different settings of my camera. Although I like some parts of the picture, it not quite what I wanted. Ah well, we'll get there.

It's very nice, Eliane!

The magnolias are already over in our world. Even the cherry blossom are falling now. We had a 25 deg C day...
