This was taken in a park I discovered today in my town, this particular tree only blossoms for 10 days a year so I was very lucky to get these shots.

PP. Very little, convert from raw boosting contrast, vibrancy and reducing colour temperature (in honour of the challenge), neat image, crop, sharpen, frame, save for web.

Post challenge:

AAAAAAAAH!!! Wow, this is unbelievable, I am so pumped right now! This is the first thing I've ever won photography wise, I'm so happy that the effort I've put in over the last few months has come to something in the end. Thanks to all you wonderfully generous voters and to everyone who has helped me improve to beyond what I thought possible.

This shot is for my Uncle Mick.

p.s Just noticed this is the first shot to ribbon with my lens and the second with my camera!

I think this border is fitting to the image. Must be the matching flower's white tones.

I like it really a lot, great focus. Wish the major elements were a little more blue/green to more closely match the challege.
