Photo-of-the-Day / 2012-04-11 / Supreme Court Blooms

April 11, 2012

I had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. in April 2010.  While taking a self-guided walking tour, I noticed the cherry blossoms trees near the U.S. Supreme Court building were in full bloom.  Of course, I had my camera and happily snapped away. 

The original image I captured is slightly different this published image.  I decided to try a few of the new techniques I learned in my Adobe Lightroom class.  After spending some time cropping the original image and changing the angles to get just the right look as well as tweaking the white balance and adjusting the tone to make it more visually pleasing, this is the final result.

Just for fun, I have posted the original image below so you can see the difference.  Let me know what you think.
