J'aurais aimé les voir en couleurs. Elles doivent être magnifiques.
Tom Wilson: Les fleurs étaient presque entièrement blanches et, en couleur, ont été «soufflées» - c'est pourquoi j'ai utilisé cette version.
It looks like a negative - or a silver etching!
Tom Wilson: A curious effect - the light was so strong that the pure whites of the blooms was completely blown in colour, so I used this B&W conversion.

Bright to the eye, Tom
Tom Wilson: "Blown" in the colour version - hence this version smile
Shot from an infrared gun, it appears, Tom. smile
Tom Wilson: It does rather look like that, but the light was so strong that the pure whites of the blooms was completely blown in colour.

This has been a year to remember
Tom Wilson: It has indeed!
There is something about the harsh contrast that seems to suit this image Tom.
Tom Wilson: The light was extremely strong and the white blossoms were completely blown in the colour version - hence this.
joli noir et blanc aux blanc un peu "surex"!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Oui, c'est vrai, Jean Pierre. Les fleurs étaient presque entièrement blanches et, en couleur, ont été «soufflées» - c'est pourquoi j'ai utilisé cette version.

I have a magnolia tree in my garden, with the most beautiful flowers every year, but not as many as the tree in your picture.
Tom Wilson: The magnolias in the Botanical Gardens have been stunning this year - masses of blooms!
Nice shapes against the sky.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary
I like this, it seems strange to see magnolia in B.& W.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - in colour, the white was completely blown - a grey sky would have been better smile

What a wonderful picture, love the silver bright and contrast.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid.
It has been magnificent this year and this works well in B&W
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bill.
The sheer verve of this is wonderful...
