    Beautiful flower, perfect shot! In my opinion, your best on Fotocommunity - till now! From the contour of the leaves it looks like they are floating in oil!

    Unusual combination of colours. Very interesting!
  • Andreas Krupitzer 03/18/2008 17:13

    Yes I do, I like it very much.
    Your first upload shows a very well composed pic with beautiful colours and sharpness.
    Remarkable for me is how you show the tense of the water surface along the leaves and sticks.
    Best wishes
