The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.
Service berry is one of the earliest shrubs to bloom in the Spring and this one started blooming about 2 weeks ago. I used a single diffused off camera flash to give this one some light. One of the older flowers has translucent petals and was a pleasant surprise to see.
I cropped this one for a tighter comp and edited several bokeh in the upper LH corner that tended to pull the eye away from the flowers.

I remember a friend pointing out serviceberry bushes to me in early spring and now I always look for them. Such a graceful branch you’ve showed us here. The contrast between the flowers and the unfurling leaves is really pleasing. I like the transition from crisp detail to OOF elements. I wonder if the mid-tones could use a lift. The scene feels a bit heavy and gloomy. A lovely bunch though and I’m glad you posted them.
