Lotus Flower, picture taken at Botanic Garden in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"The lotus flower appeared in legends originating from ancient Egypt. It played an important part in ancient Egyptian religion. The pure white lotus flower, the only plant to fruit and flower simultaneously, emerges from the depths of the muddy swamp. Growing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center."

Hi Renato,
I like the composition and the light is beautiful on the leaves. The only thing that in my opinion is not working is that the flower is over exposed. I am no expert but I think you could have compansated on the exposure.
