    Beautiful effect on these magnolias. They are different than the magnolias around here though. Very pretty!

The adjustments made really brings out the darker lines in this one. Excellent comp, love the color, and wonderful eye for this!

Thank you! The equalize adjustment (PS7) really seems to make white subjects "pop" in a dramatic way.
These flowers grow on a bush and are much smaller than the ones I remember on magnolia trees where I grew up.
