The smooth water in the foreground with the stem/bud reflection make the photo.
EJWilkins: Thanks Clint, that's why I took the picture. smile

Very nice! It is interesting how the water can look so different at the top and the bottom of the picture.
EJWilkins: I've been trying to work out why there's such a difference. I think the upper part of the picture reflects colours from trees.

Really nice capture and perspective. Vibrant colors too smile
EJWilkins: Thanks, it was the first time I'd seen one of these flowers in bloom, the colour was something that caught my eye. smile
Nice reflection and i agree with Martin about the water. smile
EJWilkins: The difference between the two areas of water is quite amazing isn't it?
nice framing.
EJWilkins: Thanks Chantal smile
The more I stare at this, Ellie, the more I see! Those leaves are so huge and magnificent. I wonder why some are up, raising themselves to the sky, while others are lying flat in the water (like what I think of lily pads doing!). I wonder if they have a cycle they go through before they end up lying on top of the water. (Sorry, I'm thinking out loud.)

Anyway, my eyes are wide open for this pic! smile
EJWilkins: If I had a decent printer I think I'd hang this picture in our bathroom, and I don't say that about many of those I've taken! I think the leaves almost look like a crowd of people, jostling for position to get the best view .. of the sun.

Great pic Ellie. I think you need some hippos to eat these weeds in the water tongue

Striking reflection
EJWilkins: Nice idea Louis, but I don't think they'd like Southampton, much too cold! wink

A very delicate image Ellie, the reflection leads the eye nicely into the frame. Mal
EJWilkins: Thanks Mal, a positive critique smile
Simple, butÂ… very pretty image! Ellie.
EJWilkins: Ese día buscaba reflexiones. Era afortunado yo encontré uno que era tan bueno. Gracias Jose. smile
Hi Ellie. Very nice shot, well composed !
EJWilkins: Merci beaucoup Roland smile
Nothing new from me compared to all the other comments, but a good comment can never be repeted to often :o) Love the reflection. The blue water in the foreground, and the brown in the background makes me loose a little bit of what's heaven and what's earth....and I like that :o)
EJWilkins: The different colours of the water, and the difference between flat calm in the foreground and the movement in the background is a really odd effect, I agree. I like it too smile
Beautiful reflection here makes a nice contrast with the water in the foreground and background.
EJWilkins: Thanks Daniel, the contrasting areas are rather interesting too, amazing how the leaves flatten water movement.

Really top image, Ellie. For me, the absolutely mirror-smooth water in the foreground is very calming. The leaves are a gorgeous colour. Your potrait presentation is an excellent choice.
