This was a tricky shot, the sun was in front of me but as you know, our eyes see much more than our cameras. I went with an HDR approach on this one. As I was working with the image I crossed this point where it seemed almost pastel, I decided to stop here. This was the day before Easter and this had the Easter feel and morning look that I was hoping for and is closer than you would think to the original scene (backlit cherry blossoms, backlit trees and backlit capital building). Enjoy, this is definitely one of my favorites.
