Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Nikon D3200 which is quite new to me. For the first time I have used the guide in the camera.

You definitely have some interesting views of spring leaves with all of their tones and colors, plus your use of shallow depth of field for the apple blossoms really helps emphasize them. A challenge you are facing is that most images are underexposed. Digital camera sensors are not at their best with underexposure and will give less than optimum color, tonality, contrast and noise. The apple blossoms are a good example of this. Those white blossoms are gray, not white. White things should be exposed to be white, though still holding their detail. If you are not sure, check your histogram. Treat the histogram as a very visual display of exposure and don't worry about the math behind it. All you have to do is pay attention to the right side. You do not want a big gap there that means underexposure and that most of your detail and color is being exposed to the left, which is dark. You also do not want to clip off the histogram at the right side either that would be overexposure. Rob
