Was over at my neighbor’s house and saw these Magnolia buds just starting to form. They almost look like some kind of fuzzy material, but what beautiful flowers eventually they become!
My settings were ISO 400, f/9, 1/250 sec at 200mm (70-300mm). I cloned out a distracting leaf and sharpened only the bud to make it pop a little more. No other editing applied. Not even any Topaz this time! 🙂
