Magnolia Blossom By Bob Jensen

Magnolia After

Magnolia Blossom by Bob Jensen.

I see so many lovely images in the French Kiss Texture’s Flickr group. I particularly love this one by Bob Jensen. Besides immediately loving the detail, composition and treatment of this intriguing flower macro, I have to admit, I’ve never used the Urban texture. I love it that my users show me the possibilities of a texture.
