The translucence of the blossoms is matched by an equally compelling and luscious backdrop ... gives me hope that Spring is not too, too far away even here in the middle of the country!

Tomas Turecek from Czech Republic

aaah, these are fantastic. I like the composition and colours. I would propose to lighten it up a bit, use some noise reduction tool and try lower compression ratio to eliminate those "layers" in green background. You are so lucky having a spring already!

I forgot to write that I've been working with some Narcissus images. Finding a texture that works with them is difficult. You did a great job here.
