Tulip magnolias and a message

The other day, I took some shots of tulip or saucer magnolias (Magnolia x soulangeana to be exact) with different exposures.

For the first, I used the “correct” settings:


For the second, I changed the shutter speed for a different look:

Springtime dance  {explore--thank you!}

Experimenting is so much fun in photography.

Finally, I’d like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my husband, the sweetest man I know. My life got better the instant we met, and I am forever grateful. I love you, honey.

    Happy Birthday to “Mr. Pearl”. Great husbands are such a blessing. I’ve had mine for 28 years 🙂

    Sending blessings your way on this special day, Jeanne

    This is so cute.
    And I love the pictures too. The second one makes them look like Japanese cherry blossoms.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Pearl!

    The second photo looks like … I don’t know, a Japanese painting? An English tea set?
