    Pink Water Lily

    I like to go out during my lunch break at work and take photos. There are a lot of wetlands and woods around.

    The pink lilies were in a pond at a nearby cemetery. Sounds morbid, but it is a beautiful place. I was drawn to the color of the lilies and what I like about the photos is the different colors and textures of the pads.

    The photo of the yellow lily was a retake. The one I took at lunch had the highlights blown out so I took another photo at 5 pm. I used partial metering and changed my focus point to just the center point.

    C and C welcome.

    Nice job with the colors. I like the comp better on the second one. The last one is awesome against the dark BG.

    Dan,

    Thanks for your comments. I think I like the second one best too. It looks nicer with the larger depth of field.

    Joe,

    Thank you for commenting on my photos. I am a big fan of your bird photos. I also like to shoot bird photos and hope to have some as nice as yours some day.
