Cherry Blossom in Greenwich Park, just after Sunrise.

Got there when park opened at 6am so it would be empty / quiet (as went at 6pm last night and it was packed), however there was already another photographer there, and soon there were a handful of people about, so wasn't able to get the totally empty shot I wanted, however just after sunrise this lady was doing a bit of "filming" on a phone, and I managed to get her walking down the path, and to some extent think it adds to the photo.

Camera: Canon 600D
Lens: Canon 18-135mm
Date / Time: 14/4/2022 7:07 (EXIF says 6:07 but I haven't put clock forward an hour since BST started).
Shutter speed: 1/80
Aperture: f/5
ISO: 100
Focal: 53mm

In Elements 11 cloned out small tripod that was in front of lady, and adjusted shadows, highlights, levels, saturation, contrast, and sharpened, and small crop.

Great scene and colours, beautiful trees there. The figure does add to it, although the vacant bench creates a kind of emptiness to me. You should have asked the lady to sit there (he says, not that I'd have the nerve to do so myself!)
