Hello MY Wong,
a brilliant shot of the lotus. The value adds on with the presence of the insect. Great glowing colours well depicted and well managed and well thought shot.
Very clear and sharp, and nice texture is seen.
Lovely post.


Bonjour My,
Le cadrage serré de cette publication valorise la finesse des détails du sujet ainsi que la délicatesse de ses couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Man Yee,
Very nice flower, you´ve captured all the beauty of it with a good illumination. I like how fills the image and the mosquito detail "broken" flower harmony, being another attenton point.

A photo simply wonderful and fascinating, technically unassailable, which shows, along with the rest of your picture, not just your master, but an extraordinary sensitivity and aesthetic sense. The lotus flower is one of my favorite among the flowers in the world.
Greetings and congratulations

MY, this is an outstanding shot. You did a great job capturing it. The insect is a plus. Have a great day. Bill Houghton

Very good macro. The lotus flower are so wonderful. Great capture of the insect, he make a trip on the sweet flower of China.


Hi My Wong,

Beautiful color tone of full bloomed lotus flower!
I like elegant petals with pink, white and yellow color.
And, it(the insect of right-center) draws out well good effect in the entire image as well as the color contrast between this flower and background, I think.

Thanks for sharing!


WOW... I love this photo... so delicate and elegant... love the back-lighting. Wish I could join the insect (lucky thing) in a closer exploration of this beauty. Very well done and presented.


Beautiful. Great colours, sharpness, composition and lights handling. Perfect work MY. Best regards.

Hi Man Yee,

Very nice capture. Great details and colors.
