While I love to find grand landscapes to shoot that communicate place, time, and mood, I also enjoy capturing something that lets the viewer make their own assumptions on the place, time, etc. where it was taken.  What I like about this particular image, is the fact that you can’t tell whether it was taken in a small little pond where this was the only flower, or in a giant pond overrun with lily pads.   It’s up to you to decide.

    Really like this shot. Has a nice soft and almost painted feel to it. Works very well. Would make a wonderful print.

    Great shot Steven. Love the colors with the contrast between the flowers and the green of the lily pads. Great processing with the softness you’d expect from a flower.

    Big pond. Definitely. As if I would know, but that’s how it hits me, since you made me think about it. Nice work.

    The water droplets on the lillys are wonderful. Love the soft, soothing green as well. Wonderful, peaceful image today!
