White flowers are challenging to photograph, especially in bright sunshine, which appears to be the case here. The blooms are simply overexposed. If you adjust your camera to a slightly darker tone, or do it via software, the whites will have a range of tones and the interior of each blossom will be more prominent than it is now. Enjoy your summer flowers and all the memories they hold.

My condolences on the long s of your mom as that is a deep hurt. How wonderful that her garden exploded in bloom in her honor. These lovely white flowers are so suitable for a memorial piece.

What a beautiful dedication to your Mom,filling the frame with these lovely white blossoms.I bet those flowers bloomed so well because she wanted you to know that she was there. I understand how you feel,my Mom has been gone just over 5 years,and I still miss her so very much,it seems no matter how old we are,we still need them,even if it's only to hear their voice. Best wishes in the contest with your lovely tribute!

The picture is so bright that it has practically no depth. I suggest working on saturation and contrast. The flowers are obviously thriving and inviting.

nice filling of the frame, but the focus is totally out and the color is too bright and distracting

better luck next time

thanks for sharing

First of all, I want to express my sympathy on your mom's passing. What a dedicated daughter you are to take care of her for years. (I know from experience it can be difficult caring for a parent) Now that she's gone, you are still honoring her by dedicating this photo to her. This is a lovely picture. The blooms are so abundant and fresh looking. I like the shadows the stamens cast on the petals. Your wish is for your mom to rest in peace. My wish (and prayer) is for you to live in peace. Shalom!

What a lovely memorial to your Mum, Kelly. I like how you filled the frame with these beautiful white flowers - I'm sure she's looking down on them delighting in their beauty. Very good lighting and focus. Lovely composition. Suzanne

A very nice flower scene presented here in memory of your mother. Your fine and full composition offers us an enjoyable look at those beautiful flowers. Exposure and sharpness are good. My mother passed away 20 years ago this month. I still miss her, so I think I know how you feel.
