About the Image(s)

The singular leaf sticking upright among all those lily pads caught my attention., Shot at 600mm, ISO 400, f8 and 1200th second. Cropped about 25%.

Unusual subject. Darkening backgrounbd and increasing the vibrancy of the subject with removal of the sheen would help the image.   Posted: 10/04/2020 14:36:20

Nice detail. Agree about darkening the background or giving it a bit of a vignette. Maybe reduce highlights a bit but not sure about that.   Posted: 10/15/2020 14:08:29

The contrast between the background and foreground clash. So I cropped as much as I could of the background so as not to crowd the subject.   Posted: 10/19/2020 18:48:43

I guess I would have to go along with the other comments. The leaf is interesting but the water in the background does draw the eye away from the leaf. I hate to even mention it, but a polarizing filter might have helped. I have one but the last time I used it, it was as a neutral density filter.
