Not much to say, it's an indoor garden with a Japanese theme. I also took a few vertical shots, but this horizontal shot seemed more colorful.

This is so very peaceful!

a polerizing filter will get rid of the reflection in the water

This is really an interesting shot of an unusual place. On the whole, however, I think there are too many elements in it, especially if you want to focus on the subject of color.

Seems .. undersaturated or overexposed or ... something! Maybe it's just looking at all these photoshopped pics with deep color saturation, but this one's a bit more muted. I like it - but not the huge reflection on the water. 7

Very pretty place...I bet is smells good in there.

This is a nice scene, but it seems very busy. It's difficult to find one region that really draws my attention, still I like this

I like the waterfall that is barely visible off to the top right of the photo. I wonder what the shot would have been like if you were standing a bit more to the left and caught more of that waterfall, leaving the teahouse to be closer to the left (rule of thirds idea).

Nice, I wished my flower garden look like this.

You have really found something colorful here! You got it from a good view point, great capture!

There is a nice levity in this picture. I've tried taking pictures inside a arboratorium before but found the dim lighting conditions difficult to work with and I didn't have a tripod with me at time. I think your exposure is spot on here.

This is a beautiful photo. My favorite part is the reflection in the water.

Nature is an awesome place to get color, isn't it! Great shot! I love the cascade on the right hand side. Nice view...

Very nice shot. I can't help but think that the cropping is a little off. I would like to see more of the roof or no roof. That little bit of roof teases the eyes. Actually the water is more interesting.

Nice. Reflections on the water are distracting.

Such a beautiful garden, I could look at this all day long. Great depth to it leading to the room at the rear, with such beautiful flowers surrounding it. The visual impact is stunning. Focus is excellent and sharpness is is splendid from front to rear. The colour that you've captured is rich and lively, really energetic. And I also like the reflections in the water. . .

Now there is a place to get quietly lost in.

I like all the colors in this picture but I think you might be running into resolution limitations here. This is a picture that contains a lot of detail and the limited resolution we are given to work with eliminates a lot of the detail. This lack of detail really takes away from the impact of an otherwise great picture. The way it is now the picture looks too busy. I think the composition looks good and I think you have done a good job considering the difficult nature of the subject. I am giving this one a 5.
