Saucer Magnolia

Saucer Magnolia , originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

It is March 6th and the Saucer Magnolias are in bloom already. The daffodils have been in bloom for a month already. The Bradford Pears just starting blooming. It is about a month ahead. Achoo….

This is the original shot. I used the ADB_Polapan preset in Lightroom 4 to make the above image and used an Elements frame effect to add the border.

Lovely color in the original and nice cropping and processing in the top image.

I just realized that my ISO was set to 400. I keep forgetting that my camera doesn’t reset itself 🙂

I prefer this one in color as well….but I do love the processing of the black and white…love the grainy background you added and the smooth frame

I think if the original were cropped as th etop one is – It would be my favourite.
