Tonight I tried to take some pictures of the Sakura flowers at night, and pretty much uniformly failed. Here are the three most interesting of the failures. I ended up fiddling (rather noticably) with the brightness and such in order to make them turn out a bit better, but in the long run I doubt that any real improvement occurred.
Seen at a very small size, this picture presents the illusion of success. Larger sizes quickly reduce that supposition to a myth.
Some of the flowers here do in-fact appear like they are supposed to.
Well, these just look kind of impressive, despite not looking at all like they were supposed to.
