Nice flower macro. Pretty colors and good DOF. This should do well.

I had to look it up:

"80073 Magnolia obovata (-10°F, USDA Zones 6-10) This species is native of the Kuril Islands of Russia and the Islands of Japan. This tree blooms at or shortly after 10 years of age and will eventually reach 60x50' or larger; specimens in the forests of Japan measure 100'. The leaves on this are impressively large, 18' long and nearly half as wide. The flowers are 8' across with creamy white tepals, the outside tepals are pink and shows a great contrast as the flower opens."

Not nearly as beautiful as your description.

Needed a third bud to balance the picture. Good sharpness, colour and separation from the background.
