Magnolia 2

Magnolia 2

Heading to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx last April (2016), intent on capturing some shots of one of my favorite flowers - the white magnolia, I realized I arrived probably 4 or 5 days too late to capture the blossoms at their best.  To deal with this, I decided to highlight the pink color of the pistil, and some of the pink veining of the leaves in an overall composition that greatly overexposed the leaves allowing just enough detail to suggest the flower.
