[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nymphaeaceae is a name for a family of flowering plants. Members of this family are commonly called water lilies and live in freshwater areas in temperate and tropical climates around the world. The family contains 8 genera. There are about 70 species of water lilies around the world[1]. The genus Nymphaea contains about 35 species across the Northern Hemisphere. The genus Victoria contains two species of giant water lilies and can be found in South America. Water lilies are rooted in soil in bodies of water, with leaves and flowers floating on the water surface. The leaves are round, with a radial notch in Nymphaea and Nuphar, but fully circular in Victoria.

Water lilies are divided into two main categories: hardy and tropical. Hardy water lilies bloom only during the day, but tropical water lilies can bloom either during the day or at night, and are the only group to contain blue-flowered plants.

Water lilies can be fragrant, such as Nymphaea odorata.

hi Foozi

If I look back at your 1st few postings, you surely have shown vast acquisition of photography knowledge and skill in this graphical presentation, impressing to me and pleasant to look at.

The composition of the flowers, reflection facing the light, chosen angle. Perhaps use some personal writing in notes in addition to wiki quotes, that will be great.

Well done.

tfs, bill

Hello Foozi
This photo reminds me the traditional japanese painting; it is fantastic, since the soft and sharp colours and detail, until the fine and delicate composition. Great one.
Congrats, mb

Excellent simple compo, I seems a Japanese painting...

dear Foozi,
this gray water surface is itself beautiful and very effective to show us the vivid pink color of the water lilies.
and the half tone reflections on the water makes magical space in this picture.
and the composition of two leaves and the dragonfly is nice.
whole image is like a poem of light.
thank you,

hello Foozi, I have been away a long time.
Waterlilies are among my favourite flowers and the colour of these are stunning against the grey water.
Lovely lighting and well composed.
Mu compliments.

Olá Foozi, Boa tarde,
Charming post. Nice colors, contrast and reflçections. Excellent pOV.
Great one,

Hallo Foozi, I just love the stunning colours of this picture looking at it make one feel like the flowers in the picture is moving.I love it and I thank you for sharing.

Hi Foozi,
It seems like you have gone from TL also MF... Superb image with fantastic colors, really artistic work. If I may be a bit critical, if you left the camera just a little bit down, reflection of the closer lily wouldn't be cropped (even if xou only cropped the edge of one petal only). In spite of this minor problem, a photo to be proud of. Congrats.
Tfs, friendly regards, László
