Love the color and the focus!!
Need to take a lesson from you on flower shots!!!
Absolutely gorgeous….love the light shining down!!! Thanks for visiting!
I love magnolias, Kala. Having lived in Atlanta for 25 years, I guess you’d know that! So dreamy and spring-ish.
That is so beautiful, especially the larger version.
Thanks for viewing it large!
A nice set of PDC for this picture! I have two in my garden, I like the carpet of petals left on the ground after bloom! Beautiful tones!
I love the harmony of the colors there! Have a great week!
I sense those in the shade yearning and reaching for the sun as well…
absolutely wonderful in frame and as always a prfect use of natural light
Un des arbres le plus joli au printemps ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée
Lovely flowers. Like your composition. Wonderful!
wow! you never fail to come up with great compositions! am always an avid fan here.
Very nice work Kala ,great picture with your own style
Beautiful! Nice and soft:-)

So fresh so natural, love how you framed this
I love the sensitivity with which you have photographed these blooms…I can feel how present you truly were to the moment.
Very beautiful! The fading Magnolia flowers are very impressive.
This is beautiful to see Kala..We have snow this morning
Thanks Mumsy! Sorry about the snow.
Lovely, as are all your shots!
i smiled when i saw this.
I do enjoy your photo technique. These are beautiful!
Beautiful photos of magnolia! I’m watching my neighbor’s tree for blossoms, but none yet..
What a beautiful photo! I love the green tones in the background, they complement the pastel tones of the petals incredibly well… marvellous.
Beautiful composition and wonderful use of complementary colors.
Really cool shot love the soft colors. Don’t you just love how these things smell too?
Yes, and thank you!
Wonderful, soft colours…

Thanks for visiting my website and sparing time to leave your comment.
Your website is very well designed and photographs expertly shot. I am tagging it in my favorite links.
Thank you so much for you visit – I’m glad you enjoy it here.
very nice flowers, Kala
like a dream
Lovely colors! I like the focus on the side, it makes me reach into the bokeh…
My favorite tree and flower, I do have “wet” dreams about this tree:)
My favorite tree too!
This is gorgeous!
Beautiful shot! Love the colors!
Lovely light… gorgeous composition!
These (and Dogwood blooms) are my absolute spring favorites!
This is such a wonderful spring photograph Kala.
Just love this one!
I love magnolias! They smell so exquisite! And I have a ‘Susan’ magnolia in a large pot which I got to remember my lovely dog, Susan, by. It has the most lovely, slender, magenta flowers on it.
Tht’s a very beautiful picture.
Another dreamy image – excellent as usual. I think I like it better than the similar looking one you did on March 31 but both are awesome!
Elegant capture! Beautiful Kala!
Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous!
Love the aqus blue of the sky back drop with the faint pinks of the flower.
I have one my garden and flowers are there now
I love this background very much!
Apple green and pale pink are very matching.
I love the colors and your perspective is quite nice.
I can almost smell them. The background and colors in this are wonderful.
I tried to grow a magnolia once. It died. I think I might try again though. They are so pretty.
Beautiful green background. Just stunning.
Stunning! I love these colors.
Beautifully composed with great colors and detail. I love the shallow DoF here giving attention to the magnolias in the foreground, while still knowing what exists in the background.
I think you understands, as the nymphs, the flowers and the nature. I love your nature pics.
love the soft focus and colours.
Love magnolias! That is one of many things I miss about E Texas– all the huge magnolias.
Thanks for the visit!
I *love* magnolias. Beautiful.
I love them too.
Lovely post-processing on your magnolia composition.
Thank you !
that’s awesome! love the perspective..
This is so funny, Kala. I just studied all the 100 or so entries and picked yours for composition not knowing it was from you. We must be on the same wavelength when it comes to photography. Once again, your photo is superb!
Happy Macro Monday.

This is amazing! I don’t know how you achieve your tones but my goodness, they are gorgeous! I checked you out on Flickr. Congrats on being featured. I especially love your advice in answer #8 – I am taking lots and lots of classes and it has changed my photography completely. And, I totally agree that not everyone is going to like my work – but I do it anyway
I’m glad you like the shot.:) And good for you Barb – I’m happy to read you’re taking classes!
The pale and precious colors are outstanding in this one, especially in the full size version. Beautimous!
