Revisited this little lake 3 times to get different perspectives on these beautiful color laden small lilies. The maple in the center and the other trunks attracted me to this image. I think it looks better viewed larger.

Specific Feedback Requested

Comp and processing. Does this lack a focal point for the eye? I am drawn to the center red then the trunks but interested in others opinions.

My eye is drawn to the trunks initially, and then it drifts down to the bright patch of water in the LRC… With out the trunks, I don’t think this image works, but with the elements that I mentioned, I think it works reasonably well. The color palette is interesting , the hints of red and purple work well.

To my eye, this feels slightly crisp (over-sharpened), but just barely. It will be interesting to see if anyone else agrees, admittedly it’s subjective.

I like the graphic quality of all those repeating minute lily pads. It’s like many violins rapidly being stroked repeatedly. The end result is mesmerizing.

This tapestry doesn’t need a focal point any more than do the patterns in Muslim art.

I really like this, Mario. I could imagine it really huge on a wall.

Thank you all @Ed_McGuirk @Vanessa_Hill @Igor_Doncov for your time to comment, appreciated.
Igor, I see your reference to Islamic art with the repeating lilly pattern, interesting.
