Winner: "Plum Blossoms" By Jessica Nelson


“We planted this plum tree a few years ago just so I could enjoy the pink blossoms every spring, says Nelson. Each spring, it doesn't disappoint. It was dawn and I wanted to capture these blossoms in the morning light with my macro lens. The red leaves were just starting to form and I positioned myself so that the background color would be warmer with those leaves behind the blossoms instead of the green grasses further away.” Sony a7III, Canon 100L macro lens. Exposure: 1/125 sec., f/4.5, ISO 64.
