Just getting around to posting some of my water lily images I got at the arboretum a few weeks ago. All comments welcome. >=))>

Larger version is stunning, Bill. I really love the yellow or golden glow from the center of the flower. Excellent all around…:+1:

Oh wow, stunning is the right word for this image, Bill. Love the treat of colors, the details throughout the lily, and the nice green background of the out of focus lily pads. :+1::+1:

It is stunning! looks as though the light is emanating from the center of the flower. the green background is complementary. Very good use of ambient light. Great details on the petals.
