This image was taken early in the morning just as the sun was hitting this pond under the canopy in the jungle.  Wish the stem was not coming out of its head but removing it would affect the integrity of the image.

The morning light illuminates the scene beautifully. The “stem” near the head appears natural and is not an issue with me. Well done!

Great composition and beautiful lighting! A fine image - that stem is part of the scene and no problem at all, my eye goes straight to the main subject.

I was immediately attracted to this photo by the punchy rich colors which happen to be very natural in appearance. The dark water is a wonderful backdrop. Neat diagonal in the lower right too.
