Please check out V2, as well.

The lotus grows in the mud but blooms untainted above the surface. It symbolizes the overcoming of ignorance and attainment of elightenment. (Nan Tien Temple literature)

Both versions are beautiful but v1 does it for me. I like it because the foilage is a bit darker and out of focus which I think shows up the flower better. Also I think the composition in v1 shows it off best.
