This image of some waterlilies taken recently reminded me a bit of a Monet. Attempted to do some selective focusing - don't know if I was entirely successful.

Hope to catch up again on viewing and commenting in the next day or so. Thank you for your comments on my last posting.

Thanks for stopping by Smile

Good to see your work again Stan, this is certainly reminiscent of Monet's 'Water Lilies' with lovely colours and the selective focusing works well too...

this is lovely, beautiful colours and good contrast, and the focus is very effective.
it's such a pity that the petals and leaves seem to have a sprinkling of debris
