White flowers, as with any white subject, are difficult to focus. I did a series of shots of white Magnolias similar to this one about a month ago. Only one or two out of the series turned out half way decent. You have done a good job here. It is very easy to wash out the detail, especially in bright sunlight. The detail in your shot is excellent.

Lol Vito, don't say that to professionals. I mean, you can say but you have tu run fast
Aladyforty, I think you did a good job with this one. I noticed that similar flowers are indeed hard to focus (tulips for example) so I used manual focus which is, of cource, button operated and annoying.

I like this. It looks like you took it in bright sunlight, if so kudos to you. I've been working with white flowers and finally shading them with my body and still no go. Good job.
