I like the last one the most, because of the best light.

Thank you, sens

I am very picky about the light.  I usually only shoot these guys at dawn or sunset.  I find that they start to glow when the sun starts to go down.  I played with all these in Lightroom to try and get the light right.  Thanks for your feedback.

Very nice, any shots with shadows?
In reply to jrdu, Jun 15, 2013

Very nice, beautifully mellow, but I do like shadows, do you have any of those type of shots also?

Very nice, John! Did you try a little curves adjustment on the first to darken it up a bit?
Love the last two.

I never thought about shadows, Elliott
In reply to elliottnewcomb, Jun 15, 2013

but I'm sure there are some nice examples in the lotus ponds. I usually think of shadow as background to the inner light of the blossomes. I'll take a look next time. Thanks for the idea, Elliott.

I played with them in Lightroom, Gary

I have a Chinese edition, so I can't read the names of any of the controls. I haven't settled into a post-processing routine.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I like all but the first I like the Best...It almost seems like it is backlit?
