visualizing the shot

The cherry blossoms were in full bloom on Tuesday. I wanted to contrast the orange bridge against a backdrop of blossoms. Even though it was cloudy the blossoms were still bright. By adjusting the exposure compensation by +1 1/3 I made sure the person wasn't too underexposed.

Cool! The contrast between the two works excellently, I also love the mood with him intrigued with taking his own photo. There's something so beautiful about cherry blossoms, I get that here.

Excellent. I like how he looks quite anxious among the delicacy of the trees.
