Yes Herman, a dull day will make all the difference! I have photo's of these lilies from Kew Gardens, the pads are huge you feel you could walk on them, they are in a huge tropical green house, love the colours well done, not to dull a day or they close up, lol. regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Two very fine shots of this beautiful water lily flower, Herman, and as you indicate it's almost as if it was lit from within: there's little doubt in my mind the dull light can enhance floral photography, bringing out the true colours and preventing overblown highlights. A return trip under an overcast sky would be so rewarding.

With such a lovely flower it would be hard to do it an injustice, and you certainly haven't Herman, I pick V2 as my favourite with the smallest of margins!

V1 is brilliant, V2 is truely beautiful, the stamens could be dancing within the velvet curtains of the petals which appear to be stunningly lite from underneath.......... How did you get to be so good? and more importantly, why don't you live next door to me?

1 Feb 2013 5:25PM
V2 is my favorite though both are superb.
Great job Herman !
