Hello Sandy,

Magnifiques répliques en réflection sur l'eau de ces belles lilies, comme des ombres chinoises.
Séduisante présentation. Bravo et TFS.

Hi Sandy,
A wonderful presentation of these two water lilies and their reflection in this mirror-like water.
Nice lighting, well managed, and impeccable sharpness.
A great high POV with a considerable depth.
A very neat presentation. I like the light vignette you added in the corners.
My regards,

Hi, Sandy. A nice photo of the water lillies in the pond . You can see reflections and refraction as well giving a boost to the composition. Nice colors and sharpness. Cheers.

Hi Sandi,

You're capturing well this water lilies in pond by a good composition, good focus and excellent tones, so it's impressive to see full-bloomed lovely water lily with reflection and leaf with tasteful shape that floats on surface of the water. And, color layers in water draws out a good atmosphere for the whole, I think. It might be an influence by light.


A simple scene beautifully captured - good sharp detail and rich colour, nice off-centre placement of the lily flowers.


You have posted some remarkable shot from waterlilies and this one is another feather in your cap, Sandy!
Great mirror-reflections which gives a wonderful feeling when looking at this picture.
The light is nicely managed and clarity is superb.
Love the natural colors too.

Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice Sunday!

best regards,
