I got so many flowers for Mother's Day! But, I assumed that everyone else did, too... So, I found this water lily and shot it instead. It was full daylight and the yellows would have blown out, so I stopped it down a bunch. I like the black background, even though it's not an good representation of how it appeared when I shot it.

It's my "addition" to the scene, I suppose... as I leaned over the water on my belly.

Almost doesn’t look real. I like the moodiness of the background.

I really like the subdued lighting. It makes your composition look very natural.
