I am thrilled to report that my entry entitled, "Cherry Blossoms At Night" in the 2013 FotoDC Cherry Blossom Photo Contest was one of twelve selected for Honorable Mention and will receive online and exhibition exposure in the coming year. For those who are interested in viewing photos from the 2013 winners and a selection of favorites, an exhibition will be shown at Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts opening on May 23rd.
My goal this year was to capture an atypical shot of the cherry blossoms, something out of the ordinary. Originally, I thought that I would attempt to capture them with some sunset backlighting, however I was not able to get down to the Tidal Basin in time due to the immense amount of traffic and lack of available parking. I did however manage to capture the cherry blossoms at night, which also produced some not so ordinary shots to ultimately achieve my goal. I have assembled a new Gallery entitled, "Washington DC Cherry Blossoms" to display the photos taken this year at and around the Tidal Basin.
