#52-83: A stolen magnolia bloom

The bride brought this home from her morning walk. Didn't ask; she didn't tell.

This one lovely processed B&W Matt !!! The lighting is loaded with drama, love it.

Thanks Dave. My b&w guru (not a pM member) suggested more detail on the right side of the photo to give the blossom more depth. I'll try that. Matt

Yes probably about what not to do.......


Bringing in more of the back ground takes away from the subject for me...you have also altered the impact of the lighting contrast originally displayed....

Well spotted, Frank. I accidentally edited the wrong photo and only noticed that after I had posted it. Should I continue to fiddle, do you think? Matt
