Black Cherry Blossom

Cherry Blossoms

A wild black cherry tree in our yard is in full bloom. The flowers remind me of those fireworks that let loose with snakes of sparks which curl in all directions at once. Black and white was not my original intent. The original photographs were taken on an infrared sensitive camera (a Fuji IS Pro) and a #25 Tiffen red filter. Well, for a variety of reasons both technical and compositional, none of the pictures worked out as a false-color image. But I did manage to salvage something interesting in black and white. This is a 1/3 crop from the original. I used the Mono X preset by SEIM.
