[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Because of so many rainy days here, there is almost no butterfly or interesting insect at the horizon.
Looking at these Nympheas (White Water-lily) in a pond close to my home, it reminded me of the famous paintings of the French impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). I tried to take the picture with a similar point of view.

I like your rainy weather which give us so nice lyrical shot. Pictures scene is pleasant and nice. Your low POV and large DOF are impressive. Colours and light are delicate and fine. My compliments and best regards.

Hello Anne,
I thought of Claude Monet before I read your note! You have captured a similar light to what he depicted, though the sharpness your shot of these white water lillies prevents the impressionistic style, the feeling of the shot is certainly like a work of Monet, especially the colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Anne

Sorry to hear about all the rain...sunny days ahead.A beautiful image with lovely reflections and ripples.The colours are deep and rich.Very well focused and composed.TFS


Sobre, riche, belle composition.

Guten Tag Anne,
der Regen ist noch regener, wenn er auf Wasser niedergeht - so ähnlich etwa textete ein deutscher Dichter in den 30er Jahren an einem wohl ebenso ähnlichen Tag. Ich glaube, der Dichter war Ringelnatz.
Das Beruhigende, Besänftigende eines sommerlichen Regentages kommt auf Deinem Foto für mich sehr gut zur Geltung. Malerische Spiegelungen.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Los nenúfares son para mí románticos y los has plasmado con delicadeza en la fotografía. Se ven ligeros desenfoques superiores pero la composición y los colores son excelentes. Saludos Anne.

Hi Anne,
What a refreshing image! I prefer some rains here instead of so much sun. A calm, quiet and nice view with natural colours and an excellent pov.
TFS, José M.

Excellent depth of field with a really impressing composition of these beautiful nympheas. Obviously, it is nice to have rain sometimes even photographically!

Hello Anne,
You captured the best tone of green whith perfect location of flowers.

Hello Anne,
Lovely colours, the shades of green are amazing!
The water surface works as a polarizer, making the reflected colours look even richer...
Fine details and an attractive image to look at!

I do like the low "Monet" point of view. The sharpness and colors are wonderful. As another option try cropping off the right one fourth of the image. I find with the 4 brightest white blossoms my eye keeps going around and around and dosen't settle down. With just the two main blossoms on the left and the one barely open to their right, my eye settles down and the image feels much more peaceful?????????? IMHO : )
