Magnolia stellata

By CaroleS
Our little Magnolia stellata is now nearly in full bloom. Taken yesterday in bright sunshine, the background branches looked like a futuristic noughts and crosses game so the background just had to go this time.

Thank you all for recent comments and votes.

Best wishes

Carole

well exposed & great DoF, sharp from front to back. The plain background helps isolate the flower well.

WOW. Fantasticly beautiful image. It just reaches out of the picture and the lines and shapes are wonderful. The whites are pristine and the b/g spot on. One of your best I think.
