Found this one at a pond in Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on a cloudy and rainy day. If you look closely you can see a pinkish cast just to the right of the flower. This is a reflection of a reddish colored root or something out of the picture. Tried to remove it but left it in because I would probably mess it up.

What I like about this shot is the gray, drab water and the bright and colorful lily blossom.

Nikon D850 with G2 Tamron 150-600 @ 600, f9, 1/250, ISO 800. Processed with Nik Viveza 2, Sharpener Pro 3, and Dfine 2.

Thanks in advance for any comments, criticism, suggestions, etc.

Fine image, the water surface makes an interesting contrast with the flower.
The pink cast isn't visible on my monitor - a bit of color in the water, perhaps, but not pink.

Nice sharp image. The black and white water contrasts well with the purple and orange colors of water lily. If you use photoshop, you could try content aware to remove the brownish wedge on the right of the flower. It doesn't bother me much.

A must click to see the full beauty of this image. I love the way the beautifully detailed, and colourful water lily rises proudly, and almost defiantly from the monochrome water (I don't see any pinkish cast). Superbly taken and presented. Love it, Bruce!
