Magnolia Mystique by sundawg7

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

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.

    Fabulous capture, this is just so beautiful Ron, was it taken in the gardens where you took us ??
    how did you get the effect & what software ??
    love and hugs Ann xoxoxox

  • Thank you kindly for your compliment Ann, plus the group acceptance. Yes it was taken in the location where I took you…oh so long ago.(sure seems that way) This wasn’t one of the better years however. Though I mentioned how the image was achieved in my description, I used Tiffen software for the soft focus appearance and the image was a result of combining 2 separate shots through layering.
    Love, Hugs & XXXXXXXXXX♥Ron♥

    So soft and lovely Ron. The two images married beautifully. It has a romantic feel.

  • Many thanks Carol for your accolades on this image. Once in a while I manage to capture subjects that complement each other, and this was one of the times I lucked out. Hugs, Ron
