[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lilly pads in pool south of the Balboa Park Bontanical Gardens. The botanical gardens are free to roam into and a photographer can spend hours in the gardens and never capture all of the splender and beauty. What a wonderful place, to include the surrounding environs.

PP included sharpening and quite extensive "clean-up" of debri that littered the pads. It was "off" season and the aquatic vegetation was not as fresh and nice as in the summer months.

Hope you enjoy.

Hello Mike,
A nicely composed image of these beautiful pinkish red water lilies. The focus is nice and sharp and the DOF is great. The water is crystal clear allowing us to see clear to the bottom.

TFS, Ferran

Belíssima imagem com cores firmes e nitidez excelente, meus parabéns por esta magnífica captura.

Hi Michael. What a well balanced and proportioned shot. I love the pink and green together. Just an absolute VIBRANT shot. It's a picture with several depths. That's a trick to do. Well done! TFS Trevor
