The wonderful Cherry Blossoms in Bonn, Germany (Kirschblütenbäume in Bonn)

The Shot
The cherry blossoms have arrived in Germany. In Bonn to be exact and this street (Heerstrasse) is simply awesome. The entire street is covered in Cherry Blossoms for the next week or so – that’s how long they last and it felt like every single photographer was out there and shooting last night. It was of a test run for to see how it goes and it proved to be more difficult than expected. To a larger degree thanks to incoming traffic, which caused my tripod to be removed every few seconds and people simply walking and standing in front of your lens, which can be annoying at times as well. Especially if you are at the end of a 2 minute exposure :). I am happy with the result but I think I can do better and will go back this week for round number 2. There is still a light amount of lens flare and I think composition could be improved as well but anyways, it’s a beautiful sight and more importantly – it’s finally something that’s local!

This print is not for sale yet as it needs some further refinement, but check out my other Open and Limited Edition Series Prints at powered by +PhotoShelter

The Photo was taken with the following gear
Nikon D7000
Tokina 11-16mm @11mm and f/16 and 82 sec
+Induro AT114
Vanguard SBH250
Remote Release and Mirror Lock-up

Going back and shooting more cherry blossoms is on my list for this week as well as starting to plan on doing a few basic tutorials based on a few of my images, to show you how easy it can be to create truly stunning photographs. Give me some time and I will start to write :).

My website has just undergone a complete re-design and I have taken a more professional approach, especially to the shopping experience on my website. Now working with PhotoShelter is a breeze and works well. Just be aware, when using the Checkout or Sign-in Page with Google Chrome browser, the styles will break down and the site looks messy. I hope to be able to resolve this quickly.
