Wow, I see that dew! What a wonderful macro shot. I like the way the center of the flower is centered and then surrounded by three very soft looking petals. Which again speaks to the soft focus for the background.

Oh that is cool; the close up of the flower's center looks like a mini upside down chandelier or upright candelabra! Having the white petals behind it sets it off even more. This well focused close up shot was a great idea! Thanks for sharing! Daphne Oberon

Very, very nice shot! This is really well composed and framed with the white peddles! Good sharp focus with excellent details. Like the way you got in close and filled the frame with the bud just off center! Lovely natural colors with good center of interest.
Very nice visual and initial impact. Your lighting and exposure are point on perfect. Excellent technique and high technical excellence.
A pleasing view. Thank you for sharing.....

Regards,

Paul

A very nice image. I must admit that with this subject my instinct would be to shoot it as a vertical, but I like this composition with the petals nicely surrounding the subject.

Great picture of one of my favorite trees. I love the flower and it's entire blooming process. You did it justice. It is clear and picks up the red color in the middle.
Thank you for sharing.

Well captured close-up of the center of the magnolia blossom. Good color and clarity in the picture. The water drops are a great addition to the shot. The farming by the petals works well. Nicely seen. Good luck in the contest.
