This was shot in Calcutta in a night club. this was part of the reception decor,but i still felt looking at it ,that Lotus wherever it is kept it will always emanate the divinity. My guruji rightly says that the lotus can grow in the murkiest of the water and still remain as divine as it should be.

I agree with the sentiments.

Its a decent effort under poor circumstances, however the camera is showing a lot of digital noise at ISO 1600, - its outside its comfort zone here.

Not a whole lot to do except try to reduce noise, which causes some softness, however Ive done that in the mod anyway, as the flower itself is nice even when its not very sharp.

I used a noise reduction software called Noise Ninja to do this.

Scroll up to the modifications tab to see what Ive done.
