Waterlilies like Monet. In the shadows where the light is diffused trough tree leaves and reflected from the water surface creating a rich mixture of colors and contrast to waterlilies and like. Take the photo to be artwork without any postprocessing. "Waterlilies" any flowers in, on water. For voters: May the best interpetation of Monet's Waterlilies win.

Shot in my pond tonight.....sadly all the flowers were closed up......I guess they open during the day while I am at work as they were closed at 6am this morning too. I aimed to get the Monet 'dreamy' look, but with no post processing permitted, I resorted to 'old fashioned' physical filters. I dug out a cokin diffuser & shot in AV mode (160 iso) at various apertures to vary the effect of the filter. Nothing was strong enough (its a mild diffuser) - so I resorted to fine paint brush & vaseline.

|Notes:||160 iso, tripod, AV mode, physical diffuser filter + vaseline, no flash. I wanted to boost colours a bit to bring our greens & blues, but saw it was forbidden in the challenge so I refrained. Everything else in camera was as I'd normally shoot.|
