Photographer: Margaret Ridder, Redmond

Photo taken: March 14, Redmond Elementary School

Photographer's description: “I was walking around the front of the elementary school looking for a subject for a class of mine and saw the trees in full bloom. I couldn’t resist. I used a Nikon D40 with a 55-200 mm lens.”

Expert says: “This is a beautiful photo — the soft colors are wonderful, and underexposing it a stop or so adds to that softness. One thing I really like is how the photographer basically split the frame in half with the branch. I enjoy that the flowers in the center are in focus and the rest fade off.”

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
