[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lotus Flowers are extremely beautiful to my eyes, their loud colors and the way they bloom is just fearless.
Usually grow in a pond between nenufar leaves.

Used 190mm FL for this vertical frame where my goal was to show the water on background, so I stood up in the border of the pond and shot downwards.

Thanks for looking :)

Nice simple strong capture of the lotus, colours are well delivered.

Might have been nice to see a narrower DOF because, to me, the leaves compete a little in the background, but that's minor.

Placement of the flower is excellent IMO.


Boa noite Galder,

Bela florr, lindas cores, excelente luz.
Concordo com o Rew a respeito das folhas.
Entretanto, um trabalho bem interessante.
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Dear Galder,

A lovely capture from a well placed waterlily!
The colors just sprout out from the image.
the color contrast between the pinkish/magenta colored lily and the water is amazing.
I just wish the waterlily could be bit more sharper.

Well done!
