[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in the Aquatic Gardens of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. The title is intended to refer to perfection of the two flowers, not to my photo.

I used my 70-300mm IS lens with a focal length of 140mm to get close to these flowers, even though they were several meters away in center of the pond as I stood on the side of the basin. In PP I cropped, selectively sharpened and defined the flowers with the tool brush, and added a vignette.

Hi Sandy...
Beautiful shot with so nice composition...
Have a nice weekend...

Bom dia Sandy,
That's a very good work, well seen and well captured. Very good POV/DOF, sharpness, colors, and reflection.
Amazing work.

Hiya Sandy:
Your series on these water lilies are just superb...
the natural colors are wonderfully shown...
great lighting and composition to match...
I like the slightly defosed depth-of-field...
Good pp and notes!!!

Sublime ... good title Sandy! These water lilies are absolutely sharp as can be! They really seem almost 3D .. really isolated from the background. Nicely constructed shot too. Well done.
Have a great weekend
