With the anomaly of a Spring we had this year, I didn’t have much luck with photographing blossoms and such. Magnolias were about the only blooms I had much chance to work with. This image was captured in Hamilton ON’s RBG Arboretum in Canada.
Actually 2 separate images comprise the end result…both taken at above location. The background Magnolias were layered in as support for the main blooms. A Nikon D80 with a 70-300mm ED lens were responsible for both captures and Tiffen software for enhancing the image.
