What's better than radial symmetry?
Here's a radially-symmetrical Tahitian gardenia which is past its peak, but still interesting. I experimented with letting the whites blow out a bit -- making this a swirl of bright white. But I just couldn't do it, for all that in many of the other HDIs I've been willing to abandon realism.
If it's still there tomorrow I might shoot it again, but far tighter. There are some wonderful patterns there in the gardenia's center.
