Yozakura – a night viewing of sakura. It is a very special feeling; there is a light coming from within the tree and flowers closer to you appear purple, while inside, near the light source, they look white.  Here I experimented with very reflective, metallic dark blue, in combination with light difference on sakura.  I wanted to achieve darkness yet at same time to preserve light and cheerful sensation. With this play of light I have opened a way to presentation of different stages of day or weather condition. Metallic colors capture enough light to reflect and bounce between layers, even in dark surrounding the picture is visible and it has a soothing effect.
