Delicate, yet high key, presentation which shows the grace and flow of the magnolia blossom. Good to have you posting in flora again. Missed your images.


Quite lovely and downright beautiful. Great application and use of the lens; it’s almost whimsical in what’s got a sharp edge and what doesn’t. Surely the important center is sharp and that’s all that really matters in this case.

It’s bright and airy and the blue is just perfect. No nits or suggestions!


Larry: Great to have you and your Lensbaby posting again. This is marvelous. The blue BG is the perfect complement to the flower. Most excellent and keep 'em coming. >=))>

Very nice portrait with the lens baby Larry! Which one, can I ask?
