Hi Steven,
Perfect focusing on these beautiful pink flowers. Details are accurate due to glorious lighting. Fabulous contrast with the blue sky and the blurred BG is complimenting the composition.
Good and neat job!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Steven,

I love the details you managed to get in this floral shot!
Superb sharp shot with amazing contrasts and clarity.
Like the blue sky which gives its best to provide the magnolia flowers an exceptional look.
The colors are natural and exposure is well handled.
Great job!

Have a nice Sunday.


Nice sharp photo!! The colour saturation is eye-catching too.

Even at f11 you've got a well controlled DOF undoubtedly at the longer end of the lens.


PS I'm very much looking forward to winter up here in the Gulf......

Bonjour Steven,
Splendide composition florale.
Ces Magnolias sont remaquablement élégants.
Mes compliments pour la netteté et clarté limpide sur les fleurs.
Ayez un beau jour.

Nice follow up to your first magnolia post Steven.

Nice saturated colours, and soft focus B/G to make the flowers seem 3D.
