This was one of the first images uploaded to the website, and it's still one of my favorites. I really enjoy viewing great black and white flower imagery.

Seems like you are do for another comment. As I said a couple of years ago, this remains my favorite photo on TLF. A real work of art.

This is an extremely beautiful piece. The composition is superb and the post editing is wonderful!

I love how you showed you don't need color to make a picture absolutely stunning! I love all the shadow and the bright whites.

I love all of your magnolia and calla lily pictures! They are beautiful. Do you sell them at all. I am looking for a big magnolia print to go in my living room and this would be perfect. They are my favorite flower and my daughter is going to be named after you sell your prints by chance?

Great job on the editing and lighting of this image. Couldn't think of a grander way of displaying this beautiful flower than your photo.

This is a wonderful shot. First your capture is flawless and your edit of the capture is perfect.

Thanks all for the nice comments. This has always been one of my favorites and is featured in a show I am in right now in Washington, DC

I really love the simplicity but eye catching magnolia. It's very calming.

Great capture, I love the tonal range in this that you have managed to capture!

This is my favorite photo in The Lens Flare. It is stunning.

Time you came to New Zealand (Aotearoa) and photographed magnolias for yourself, Brian :) They're very popular over here.
Guest - Aug 31, 2004 04:07 PM EDT
This is one of my favorite pictures on the site. It's absolutely spectacular. I don't think I've ever seen a magnolia in real life. I hope I get the chance someday.

Every once in a while a photo seems able to capture energy. The magnolia is vibrant with life - a wonderful shot.
