As we were walking around the temples of Angkor we were stopped by an old lady selling lotus - got a chance for a closeup of them.

Good composition in green! I like your choice of framing and the format. Not a spectacular sight, but you did capture something very typical here and this triggers memories... Thanks!

A quality close up shot with excellent sharpness and details. BG is nicely blurred.
I saw this kind of thing when I was there just recently.

Lovely shot of this plant - the frame is well filled with a fascinating pattern of greens. I like it very much.

Thanks for visiting my gallery. Beautiful shot of the close up of the lotus, have you tried one? Well to be honest taste wise, it rather plain, nothing really intesting about it, but nutrition wise it's very good. It's also a very important plants in all Asian cultures, religions, and nutrition. We eat the root, the seed like your photo show, we enjoy the flowers, my favorite flowers, that also play important role in the Buhdist Relegion, you can often see a Buhda siting on top of the lotus blossome on top of the this lotus seed holder. We use it's large leave to wrap our food for cooking and as well. Anyway, very nice shot, showing great details and texture of the lotus. Thanks

a nice abstract like compositionwhich might have benefited from a tighter framing.Yet it remains a delicate image with subtle tones and interesting texture oppositions.
