One more shot dedicated to springtime, this time from the Prince's Islands near Istanbul. I love these fresh and tender colors that only spring can boast of, and the light and happy mood they evoke. Hope you enjoy them too:)

Viewing Istanbul from your eyes is a real nice surprise. The full blossomed redbud tree looks magical and enlightens its environs with joy and happiness. A great composition with lovely colors and intriguing details. I liked it a lot. Best wishes,

Plutôt erre de voue un arbre décoratif au bord d'une marina. J'ai hâte de voir ça dans ma cour mais ici c'est un peu plus tard. Excellente présentation dans un bel éclairage et superbes couleurs.
toutes mes félicitations,

the blossom from the tree is a wonderful colour and contrasts superbly with the blue sky. your postioning of the boat n the foreground gives interest and helps the viewer lead in to the picture. i also love the shape of the tree as it reaches up to the sky. a lovely bright scene.

its great to see you posting another photo, you should do so more often!
what a difference one simple subject, one simple color can make to a scene.
the combination of the purple and blue really makes a strong visual impact.

nice Spring scenery with the blossom tree to dominates the image as outlined perfect against the blue sky.This king of the blossom tree is named Cercis siliquastrum scientificly ,or in English Judas tree,in France Arbre de Judée,in Germany Judasbaum and in Greek Κουστουπιά.

Nice spring branches from the islands, so you've been in Istanbul recent times..Hope u like it!
Thanks for loading a photo of your style instead of common İstanbul stereotypes like the mosques, bridges or old trams :)
Have a nice week,

Hi Marina, my favourite tree (judas) in one of my favourite places in Istanbul (Büyükada). Good and heartwarming combination with the blue sky at the background. Congratulations.

Hello Marina - Delicious pink against the blue sky is so appealing and you have posted a very different Istanbul image which is lovely to see. The nicely positioned boat with the painted name gives us the location. Super. Warm regards rosemary

Lovely framing and wonderful spring colours. It is such a positive time of the year and your photo displays that superbly.
bayno (18344) 2012-05-01 12:20
certainly the main subject is the tree in bloom, even if it is placed after the boat, excellent color rendering and contrast between the color of the tree and the beautiful sky, great depth, the marina with its boats are clearly visible and pleasant...

A well taken shot with the blooming tree as main interest nicely fills the frame in this format providing a strong focal. Clarity is fine with interesting foreground and rich colors. Simple but appealing shot in the spirit of the season. Congrats, TFS

Hi Marina !!
I hope that the meteorite did not cause you and family any stress or harm.
Yes.. this is a nice picture encompassing several elements, the tree in the middle is quite sensational.
Very appropriate vertical format with an elegant small frame.
Have a nice week end.
Cheers from Australia.
