[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo was taken in Tel-Aviv Bothanic Garden.
I think it's a waterlilie Nymphaea 'Denver' 1997
A lovely double flowered hybrid with subtle primrose yellow flowers. Blooms of young plants often appear almost white, but as plants mature the yellow comes through. At the height of summer they stand well above the foliage. Free flowering late into the season. One of very few small growing yellow hardy lilies.

This is a luscious composition, with a rich warmth that I find most attractive. I like the rainy day mood that comes from the lighting and the splashes of water on leaves and petals. Superb DOF and a lovely contrast between the bright subject and the darker background.
Very well done
Best regards

Hello Alex. Beautiful composition and lighting. TFS

A very beautiful flower, Alex, presented with excellent detail, well framed and from a very goog POV. There is just one thing: i think that this waterlily (i'm guessing it's something like that) should be white...or at least closer to white. Probably the light did not work in you favour too much, this time...so i tried to modify some things in a WS. Hope you like the result.
All-in-all it's a great picture
Bravo and TFS

Hi Alex,
Very nicely captured. Well composed picture of this waterlily's flower. Sharp. Great shot.
