To be humble 要谦虚 ...


I usually spent about 3 - 4 hours
perhaps more of the observing and 
then some photographing at 
a Lotus Pond, 
one thing I learn despite so much 
beauty in them, 
they are really humble

I like the shadowy form of this. Somehow implies a deeper meaning, like life reaching out.

I like your humble point of view, and the time you spent absorbing the atmosphere of the pond. They are such beautiful flowers, so tempting to photograph completely, but you took a different approach, which made all the difference :^)

Lotus [Nelumbo] is one of my favourite plants to take photos about. I never grow tired of taking photos of the lotus blooms as well as its leaves. A neverending love...

Great section and image buildup of your lotus pond scene!

Regards, Uwe.

Wong I could get lost in your photo; it's color, depth and beauty are mesmerizing. I can't even begin to imagine seeing these stunning flowers for real and I can totally understand wanting to spend time just observing!

Cheers.

The result is great, Wong, and I am sure the time spent there was a high quality time. Lotus ponds are full of charm.

How did you decide on the camera settings. Did you bracket each of your shots? Beautiful choice after all the possibilities.
