Why are you NOT in national galleries?

Non traditional cropping, non traditional framing, yet it works quite well.
Evocative. Pensive. Meditative...

I need to take a workshop with you. :)

Twice the bride has brought home a magnolia that "fell of the tree." Twice have I tried to do something with the bloom. Twice have I failed. If Duck will drive, I'll go. If the bride allows,that is. Gorgeous. Matt

Thanks all for the comments. Here is another one. Was hoping to work with the blossom again today but it turned pretty brown
over night. ;-(

Here is another one for you Matt. This evenings photoshop play. I spied two or three more blossoms on the tree so hopefully I'll have time to explore them
more.

These are all just gorgeous Ernst. Wonderful compositional creations and flawless processing.
