Lotus flowers getting ready to step out into glory.

I found this lovely small pond in the middle of the hustle of a big city. The timing was unfortunate because the lotus flowers had not opened up yet.

Love the mood you have got in this floral posting, dear Sunil!

I like the color tones and surroundings more than the subject itself.
Great sharpness and well shown mood and charm into the scene.
The light is the best part of this picture and colors are natural as well.

Kind regards,

Hi Sunil.

This looks a beautifully, secluded oasis, hiden while it waits for the lotus to burst forth. I like the darkened backdrop as it adds much interest to the colours and light to the foreground. Framing enhances the overal feel and look, very well presented. TFS

HI Sunil,
A very intriguing exposure here. I love the lighting, great contrast and saturation, well done!

Hi Sunil

Love the richly saturated emerald green color of the water-lilies, with not a trace of any decay or frost damage as in Korea. Looks so tropical and lush. Nice framing & sharpness too. Tfs!

Hoi Linus,

Well, maybe it is better that the flowers are not opened yet, because everybody shows open flowers. :-)

Due to the good exposure I nearly can feel the atmosphere overthere. So, a good capture is done.
Good colors too.
A beautiful spot it is.


Ciao Sunil, lovely composition with beautiful flowers, excellent sharpness, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Very nice capture of those lilies. Good lighting and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
