Stopped into the Halifax Public Gardens again today to check on the blooming magnolia's and got the following shots after getting rained on.

Very cool. The first one for me, love the green fading into black.

Nice capture. Love the first picture, but of course, all of them are excellent.

Great set, Iggy. Love the bokeh in all of them, but especially #1; I have to agree with Greg_R on this. Also love the ass end of a bug sticking out in #2, though .. :laughing:

Thanks all. Dragged my tripod to work this morning to catch these. Couldn't figure out why I was still off on the focus a bit until I realized 1/20s and it was raining rather heavily off and on which moved the darn flower. D'oh! Oh, and I didn't see that bug until after I was editing. I thought it was part of the flower when I first saw it.

Very nice set Iggy, and especially #1 here also.
That "bug" sure looks like a skeeter to me, not looking forward to that season.

Nice shots Iggy. I noticed the bug pretty quick on the second one too. Probably only because I hate mosquitoes!!

Thanks, HBG and Aub! I think you are both right about the mosquito. And I hate the darn things too! ;)

Great background in the first one, although I prefer the crisper petals and mozzie in the second one. The third one seems a bit soft to me.

I thought I had already commented on these Iggy. Oh well better late than never.
Love all of them, especially the water drops and bokeh.

I'm with thoughton. Love the fade on the first but the crisp of the second. Mosquitoes!!! Ugh....
