This is the national flower of India...you have framed it beautifully...I just love the circular leaves laying on the water...Good reflection too...
Have a nice day...keep sharing...
Preciosa foto. Hermosa flor muy grande dado el tamaño del odonato. Hermosa composición. Felicidades
An interesting shot of a South American Waterlily.
I read that the rib structure of the huge leaves of the giant South American Waterlily were the inspiration for the pattern of the cast-iron ribs of Crystal Palace in London!
You got the exposure right, which is always difficult with the sun reflecting in the water.
The colours are natural, and the insect on the flower adds interest!
I like your photo very much; I think, you could improve it if you cropped a bit on the bottom as well as on the right. (I cannot show you my idea in the workshop - I have already used it twice today.) Will do it tomorrow.
Enjoy your evening
PS Please, remember next time to add a few notes! Most members - on principle - do NOT CRITIQUE a photo if there a no notes!
Excellent take, good exposure and capture, fine lightness and colours.
Superb contrast and sharpness.
Saude e Abraco!!!
