Frangipani Flower by IkklePiranha Frangipani Flower by IkklePiranha
The flower of the Frangipani tree, taken from the tree in the garden of my place in Barbados.
Also, probably going to be the theme of a tattoo for me, at some point!

1st time i'd tried macro stuff. And the colous of the flowers were too alluring to pass by, even if the subject is a little cliche.

I thought I commented once before but I will do it again. This is a nice photo. For your first time at macro it is really good. The colors and the flower are very pretty.

Really nice and clear with great colours. The petal shapes are incredible. They look almost unreal.

Yeah i know what you mean :)
What sorta style you after?
I always use [link] when i'm shot of inspiration then mess around with the pics to create something personal.
My sleeve design is being a complete nightmare for me though! Think i might end up taking it to my tattooist, him being an actual artist, me not! lol.

Beautiful! This is a very nice macro. The soft yet vibrant pinks of the flowers are simply stunning, and I like the way you shared the focus on the two flowers. The pinwheel type petals are very pretty, I have never seen flowers like this before. Great picture. :)

I just had a quick search and there's actually quite a few frangipani pics etc on here.
Seems the trees aren't just in Barbados! Hehe :)

i meant i've never seen them in new zealand.
To check out deviations that are not my friends, i just go to the homepage and view the few there. I dont search by group or anything.
But they're gorgeous flowers nonetheless.
