About This Image

The American (Eastern) Redbud trees are quite a site this year. I don't think I've ever seen so many blossoms on them. I guess if you are a fan of pink, they would be very appealing. I never could figure our why they weren't named the American Pinkbud? I might have overdone this one, just having fun. Thanks for looking. Don

Very nice composition. Is this your own tree? I have a beloved 5 year old weeping style "Redbud Lavender Twist" which give me such joy every spring.

Hi Mary, thanks! I use a basic photoshop program that came free with one of the cameras I had bought ( Rebel xt I believe ). It is called Arcsoft. I just sized the 3 images and put a clear frame on all 3, then spray painted a little pink color with light opacity on the frames. Last I copied and pasted the 2 smaller ones on the largest one. Don

Don - this definitely shows the beauty of the American Redbud. A magnificent setting and close-up for us. Stunning beauty.

Don, this is a beautiful image, I love the way you have magnified parts of the flowers and such a wonderful colour. Did you know the American Redbud is related to the Pea family. I have enjoyed viewing this image. Chriss:)

Don you have not overdone this it is beautiful. Very imaginative display and good use of colour and boarder.

Really love this shot. Love the way you highlighted and magnified the buds so we could see the pretty flowers.

I like what you did with your photo, very creative. I'm glad to see a fellow Arcsoft user, I think it's pretty neat!

I like this too; it's a very good way of showing more detail in your photo'. I like the way you've composed the shot too. :)

I think its great the way you've done this Don, like capturing a zoom through the camera lens, its very effective. :)

It's beautiful - nicely done.

Don, I love it. All the elements work well together with the framed macros. Even here in New York (the Catskills), tree blossoms are popping out like crazy while the Spring leaves are unfurling faster than I can get the images I'm after! It's a strange spring. I love your handling of this one. Great job. Vicki
