Finalist Ma. Cecilia Mendioro Gendrano

Taken during a time when I was so into solo-traveling, in springtime Matsumoto, Japan. The castle although looking very masculine was somehow softened in character by the pink blossoms around it. Taken with a Nikon D40 (entry level dslr that matches my capability) which came with a 18mm-55mm lens.

Finalist Louise George KittakaSakura cherry blossoms in full bloom around the moat at Hirosaki Castle, in Aomori Prefecture. Taken this past spring when I visited the area with my two daughters. We timed it perfectly–just breathtaking! Aomori is part of the Tohoku region, and while it was left relatively unscathed after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster in 2011, the tourist trade was seriously affected. Now, however, people are coming back to this gorgeous area of Japan. Taken with a Nikon Coolpix automatic camera.
