[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello TrekLens :
This water lily is photographed in a bright sunlight settings with some wind factor.  I have used acircular polarizer to take care of the brightness. Again I had turned off the Auto focus on my Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Autofocus Lens. Turning off auto focus has some advantages. In order to compensate the bright sun light my ISO was 100 so the reaction to the light will be slower. To take care of the wind factor the shutter was at 1/500 sec. And F/8.00.
I zoomed in to the back petals leaving the frot part slightly off focus. This will take the attention to the back petals with droplets, and I bracketed with three captures, the first & the last were half stop over and then under consecutively. This I do when I am working on images where I am not sure what might be the best result.
Thank you for viewing this work and sending comments.Please see WS for another version.
David

Hello David,
This lily looks as if it has just come straight out of the water! A sort of mermaid lily! Incredible colours in the flower and it displays well against the black. I like the exploded frame ... it makes the subject go halfway to meeting you!
Kind regards,
Bev :-)

The flower itself is exceptional beautiful. It is glowing on the back BG.
Nice to see the OOB top petals, but it would seem balance if you let the left and right petals protrude from the border too, JMHO.

Hi David,
Lovely closeup here. Great colours and nice presentation. Well done.
Sunil

This is a beautiful flower, I can't believe the bold bright colors in this flower. You captured it wonderfully. I like how you made the focus on the back petals it really draws the focus completely through the shot. The dark background really makes the flower pop out of the shot. The yellow and purple are make such a good contrast. TFS
Dayna

Hi David,

Stunning colours, the purple is fantastic.
I love the contrast of the purle, yellow and black.
Details are incredible, great POV.

Well taken and presented,
