Flowering tree

Cutting down the big tree in our garden means that we can now see this pretty flowering tree in our neighbours' garden. It was previously hidden by our tree.

The light was rather blah yesterday, so to liven this shot up, I've added a texture, courtesy of skeletalmess. I've seen many people use textures to create a more painterly effect, but this is my first attempt at doing it myself. I think it works quite well and is much easier than I thought!
