These gently curved iced butter cream curls of a magnolia blossom caught my eyes as I darted to lunch between laser hot shafts of sunlight.
The best camera is the one you have with you and as a mobile photographer I had my iPhone with me. Happily, I made the decision to stop and make an image of what caught my notice.
Post processing on my iPad in Snapseed and Touch/Retouch helped me focus the attention on the flower by cropping out distracting info, eliminating hot spots on the leaves and dark spots on the petals, increasing brightness and contrast, converting the image to black and white and sharpening. The larger screen of the iPad helps me with tight edits like the dark spots on petals.
