The majority of the time, I like to tweak my photos to create art photos. But sometimes I am so in love with the subject that I don't want to tweak it at all. That's the case with this shot. This bush grows in a neighbor's front yard up the street. The blossoms are a delightful coral/melon pink that is so bright it looks like flames. I was paying attention this year so I could catch it in full bloom.
And, yes, this is the real color of the flowers.
I think my "photographic purist" side comes out most in the springtime. Spring is ablaze with so many wonderful colors. I just realized that the rest of the year, I'm tweaking my photos to give them the same feeling of springtime!
