cherry blossoms

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. Cherry trees with cherry blossoms and petals littering the ground. Curves to brighten. Decreased green midtones slightly to bring out the pink hues. +10 increase in saturation. Minor vignetting added. Real life was still much pinker ;P

Additional Comments
Cherry blossom festival in DC last week. This was taken in a patch of cherry blossom trees close to the Washington Monument; so not the more popular Tidal Basin area. It's taken me a bit to get to editing all the photo due to exams. The weather was really dreary but the flowers were beautiful. Really pisses me off when people shake on the branches though; stop ruining it for the rest of us.

When you submit a deviation, you will be asked if you want to make your submission a print. That's probably what you're seeing.

Thank you.
But I need to pick one in order to submit it.
And am I paying to do this?

I'm not sure what you mean...the help desk and FAQs can probably be of more help than I: [link]

Ok, but my main question here is: Am I paying to post my pictures on Deviantart?

If you can't help yourself by reading through that page after you submit a picture, or searching through the FAQs I linked for you for subjects like "is dA free?", then I really can't help you.
