I wanted to take a fun colorful picture of my kids, but we are celebrating Easter a little later this year, and it would have been to late.  But still being Easter, I try to remember what this Holiday represents.  The whole reason for why today is such a good day!!!  So I went and took this picture.  I believe fully in the resurrection of Christ.  And I believe that through him we will all have that same opportunity.  I found this tree in the middle of the cemetery,  everything around here is just coming out of winter so the bloom on this stood out so bright, it was beautiful!

I love your symbolism in this photo. I don't normally like b&w with color- but I think it really works here. I think it you had muted the pink a little bit it would have looked really nice also.

Yeah, this is gorgeous. I think you totally know what you're doing. Give yourself some credit!!! I'm usually not a HUGE fan of selective coloring, but you did a great job on this one. I really love the pop of color over the black and white. Excellent editing, girl!

This is so beautiful. How did you do that? The juxtaposision of color vs. black and white is just perfect for your subject. Well done!

Nice shot and the added color for the tree is a great contrast.

I love this one! I thought of a cemetery too, but had a rough day and didn't make it out to the one I was thinking of. I'm glad you did this take on it. I love the pink blossoms, that is an awesome affect to add to this picture. Great Job!
