pink & white hanger-downer

I don't know what this flower is; a small and wide tree was crowded with blossoms. Most of them had a cluttered background of other blossoms, but I was lucky enough to find one that was isolated...



As always, C&C is welcome.

Beautiful lighting, a nice soft texture, and I like the background.👍

Re: pink & white hanger-downer

Thank you, Mike.

Early this morning I had fun playing around with this image, and ended up with a manip I'm pleased with: pink & white floral manip

Re: pink & white hanger-downer

This looks like a magnolia tree. We had one growing in our backyard. This is traditionally only a spring blooming in our area.

This is a gorgeous shot. You lucked out by getting it so isolated with that textured background. The side lighting accents the beautiful and graceful lines. Good eye, Dave, good photo.

Nice! I agree, Lorell. Nature's chandelier.

Thank you, Lorell and Quint.

And you're right - it sure looks like a Magnolia. I appreciate the identification.

"Chandelier" - that's a spot-on characterization.

Re: pink & white hanger-downer

I keep coming back to this thread I like it so much. The warm background sets these blooms (yes, magnolias) off delightfully, and the lighting on the light green and brown leaf on the left adds a nice bit of interest. Very well done!

Regards,
Dale
