Taken at Longwood Gardens as soon as they let you in the door (9am). the night bloomers are open still.....but closing quickly! This one never looks real.....but only normal PP'ing of levels and B/C and selective color.....as well as some minor blemish clean up of floaties in the water.
Canon 1D Mark ll with the Sigma 180mm macro and the MT24 twin lights at plus 1 & 1/3 at ISO 640 for 1/200 sec. at f32 hand held.

The diagonal line of the lily pads and the deep black BG really sets off this perfectly placed lily. Outstanding, Roman!

Roman, you're certainly right about this not looking real but it does look great! It really does look like it was painted. Fantastic colors and lighting!

Thanks All! Was worried about the unreal look.....but they all seem to turn out that way with this particular water lily.
