[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this at a small lake at Bay's Mountain park. The lily pads were in bloom that day, and when I went back later to take some more, they were done for the most part. This was the macro mode of the 75-300 lens and does very well when it is steadied or supported. I hope to have an IS USM lens so I don't have to depend on a support or tripod as much.

Never a frog when you need one. Nice colours and composition here

Fine macro Gary. Good colour and lovely play of sun and shadows. Yes the frog would have topped it off. TFS,
David

Hi Gary Slocum, Very nice shot.I really like the coulours especialy the contrasts between the leave, the yellow small flower anthe the dark reflection in the water. The dark water simply punches out the subject. Realy sharp too. Can notice the leave vains.

Hi Gary,
A good photo with good colors and sharpness. Actually this is not a macro since it is not scaled 1:1 or larger. Even if you set you camera into macro mode, it still won't be a macro. You will need to purchase a macro lens. This is to be considered a close up.

Niek

Hi Gary..

You sure do neeed a frog! But even without it this picture is lovely. I feel like I can touch the leaf. :) I like the colors very much.

Andrea

Beautiful capture. Water is so calm it looks like glass.
Well done.
Pierre

WOW.....EXCELLENT SHOT.........REALLY WELL DONE

Hi Gary, this is a very nice and sharp photo. Also the colours are great, well saturated and not overexposed (just on the border though on the top right leave). It is not easy when in full sun.

Love the close-up. Take care, Yan :)

I like this one very much Gary. The dark water really contrasts with the leaves and adds almost a mystery to the photo. The water does almost look like glass. Interesting composition as well. Thanks for sharing. Linda

I liked too much this shot. Some details that makes the picture very well done for me:
- very sharp and perfectly in the focus;
- good light conditions;
- a nice composition;
- no signal of your refletion in the water.

Nice work, congratulations!
