Well I have not much to comment here...
There was nice direct sun from upper left so flowers are look like light up and some differently look from water reflection. Yes... water can kill the fire.

nice shot! i like the reflection on the water and the glow of the light on top of the flowers! well done!

The sun must be getting strong and hot at this time of year.
I don't like photographing flowers in strong sunlight because of overexposure and harsh shadows, which i see in the yellow flower and green stalk.
But I do like the patterns and dark colours on the water, which is worth a point from me.

A bit overexposed but nice look; especially metalic reflections...

The picture has been taken from an excellent point of view. Dancing shadows on the water surface are looking fabullous. But I wonder why water is violet, however, yellow lotus on it are looking nice. Well done my friend.

Many thanks for sharing a brilliant image.

Beautiful and poetic. Monet - move over!

czesc Tomek
Piękna kompozycja. Super refleksy wodne, kolorki i swiatlo.
Przyjemny klimat.

Hi there!
What a great shot! I have recently also tried my hand at some reflections photos, but this one is excellent.
I love the bright colours, and the crisp detail in the flowers. The reflections are wonderful.
Well done!

Hello Tomasz,
A very attractive shot to which I would naturally have been drawn, but it was the title that got me--I have a son and three daughters.

Absolutly stunning - perfect reflection in the image. the squiggly black lines add mystery to the image. Clarity supreme.

Thanks for the kind words about my "big" horses.


Cudowne!!! Odebralo mi mowe z zachwytu!
Fantastycznie wypatrzone, a wszystko dopiete na ostatni guzik! Kupuje :)

Piekne zdjecie!
Cudowne kolory, kompozycja, odbicie w wodzie, swiatlo ...
Bardzo ladne.

Another great one, I love the colours absolutely!
Interesting compo and title. Funny how one from the group is so left out...
Well seen and caught!

I had the audacity of trying to make this shot look better than it is.. hope you don't mind. The composition and framing is flawless.. Great picture.

Hi Tom,

Beautiful picture with the bright yellow flowers . . Great compo and lovely reflection . .


Many thanks for your kind words on Multi colors egret.

Hi Tomasz! Lovely pond scene. I like the vivid yellow as it looks like it's glowing in the morning. I did some WS for a moody interpretation. I hope you like it :)

The picture is a transformation from ordinarity to fantasy!
The yellowish colour of the lilies, the leaves trying to match with them, the indigo water and the patterns formed...
