The composition of this one might seem strange with the upper petal truncated, but I chose this photo because the centrepiece was much clearer in this photo.
Taken without a tripod on a walk in the Botanic Gardens with the lovely Di English & smiley Ian English.
Thanks to Ian for holding the branch down to get this shot.
Note to Dianne .. I think I called this one a magnolia at first. Pardon moi.
Photographed with a Canon 400D in Sydney, Australia.
HDR .. Tone mapped in Photomatix.
