Sometimes things just fall into place, despite our best efforts!
This is a totally unfiltered / non-photoshopped image of a mimosa tree in bloom from last year (2020) made with my cheap smartphone and hardly any thought went into composing the photo.
Why did it turn out well? Of course, it isn’t perfect, but for the amount of effort, the equipment and no post-processing, it was surprisingly good.
I think what makes it work is
1 – Being in the right place, compositionally speaking, without knowing it. Serendipity.
2 – The sun, not apparent in this photo, was going in and out of the cumulus clouds. At the shutter click, the pink blooms were particularly highlighted by bright light. This gave the photograph the optimal lighting at that instant.
