Shooting this gardenia was quite the challenge for me. I used my 100 mm macro lens and the only way I could actually focus this all white flower was to put a piece of black paper in it and focus on the edge. It was also hard to find a clean white gardenia.

Great shot, only thing I would have done different was to make the background slightly darker, to help differentiate between the flower and the background.

At last, after wading through countless entries that were poorly shot and irrelevant to the challenge, a breath of fresh air.

IMO, This is a bit overexposed, loosing some of the detail that this flower has.
