Very nice contrasting colors. You managed to give the flower perfect sharpness, congratulations! About the composition: I like your idea, but I think it might look even better if the flower was a little lower and more to the side. Perhaps a little cropping might do the trick?
Anyway, a very nice picture! Congratulations!

This is very beautiful and surreal photograph. the sharp outline of the flower is superb and it gives a wonderful contrast to the somewhat blurred background.
And welcome to TE!

There is very nice contrast of colours. The sharpness of the flower is very good as well. I only thought the flower could be a bit more on the left side so I did a WS. I hope you like it.

This is my favorite photo of yours so far. I simply am impressed by how the scenery forms a perfect and very natural background for the lotus (the flower that grows out of the pond). The simple colors - pink, white, blue and green are very harmonious togehter. Truly a symbol of peace. Well taken.

Simple composure but very effective.

I look all your lotus sereie and in my oppinion this is best.
This one is well focused with enough DOF to show us this is picture of lake as you indicate with photo title(unlike the one with yellow flower), colours are good and exposure is correct.
Colour of flower is gentle and well presented.
