Redbud in fog

This is a backyard look at a redbud blooming on a foggy morning early last month. (5D3, 24-105 @ 58 mm, 1/80 s, f/13, iso 800, tripod)

Really nice soft gentle photo Mark. I like the redbud limb coming in from the URC with the slightly blurred background. Looks like a wonderful backyard for photography nature.

I wish my backyard looks like this but alas, I live in a concrete jungle. I think the fog adds so much to this. The only thing that I would recommend is to level the horizon. The color is so pleasing.

@Adhika_Lie, My backyard slopes strongly (in this view from left to right), if I “level that horizon”, the trees on the left will be leaning at a nearly 30 degree angle.

I love the clarity and color of the blooms against the soft hazy greens of the background, Mark. I like that you used a narrow aperture to keep the detail in the background so that it’s soft because of the fog rather than lens blur. It feels more natural that way.
