Thank You Gilles,

I have been trying for that flower for weeks, months.

Something was always wrong. Wind blowing, To much junk in image, etc etc etc.

This was taken with 80-400 VR with Kinko Pro 300 TC 1.4

I did take out some junk from pic and ghoasted the petals for fun.

I did not touch the reflecton or the water. I finally caught it smooth.

Which does render a very hot humid breezeless day.

Outing with Dao on friday.

I brought a little plastic stool with me. Sat my little can on it and just kept shooting and moving around and looking in different directions and all the different lilies.

Finally BINGO.

Hi Johathan,

Guess my ghosting doesnt look so great on net pics.

I did that in Photoshop just for the heck of it.

The original does not have that.

Thank You

Thank you Irene and Mike,

Took many sessions to get this just right, Light, smoothe water. Lillies in the right place, they do float around. :>))

So fun stuff.
