This is a superb photo, Cal! Absolute excellence. I disagree with Vito on the hot spots. Without them, there would be far less sense of the strong sunshine. Heck, we see hot spots in the world with our own eyes, so why shouldn't they also appear in our pictures?


P.S. I'm bad at identifying such things. What kind of tree is this?

Reminds me of the Cherry blossom festivals.

Your Minolta S414 is still producing some wonderful stuff! Occasionally I bring out my S404 and they are a great line of cameras.
