I took this shot at 108 shib mandir, Burdwan, W.B. It is around 6 kms from Burdwan town. There are 108 temples of lord Shiva in the campus.
The reflection of some part of the temples you can see in frame with these nice lotus. The morning light on the leafs of lotus and on the flowers attracted me. The leafs are looking silvery due to light. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you like it.

splendid shot of the pond with the red water lily to be an eye catcher of the scene.I like the reflections of the temples on the surface of the pond as the whole scene looks like a painting.Well done.

Ciao dear Subhendu,
I appreciate a lot this image, with the flowers of Lotus, because remember me my trips in the East. Technically the photo is perfect, with a pleasant over-exposure that gives the feeling that the leaves are of silver. Beautiful composition, compliments!
Ciao, have a nice day!

bella immagine con le piante acquatiche e i loro fiori.
La luce rende argentati i riflessi sulle foglie con un buon controllo della sovraesposizione.
belido (19934) 2009-10-20 17:36
Yes, I see some temples reflected on the water surface. That's a nice focal point after the beautiful flower. Very good work shooting against the light. I like this!
Waylim (24960) 2009-10-20 23:18
Beautiful color of the water lily, this brings me back to my childhood day, where I help my mother collect them, we eat the stem of the plant, usually in soup with fish. I like the reflected light on the leaves that make them looks like silver plates. The water is calm and cast very nice reflection of the surrounding, and nice composition too. Thanks Subhendu.
Urs (14082) 2009-10-20 23:25
Splendid shot with sunlight from the right side. Some of the leaves got a silver gloss but some are partly blown out. Overall a very good idea, capturing the reflection in the water as well. Next time, for an even better effect, take such a picture with this kind of sunlight 1 or 2 steps to the right, the effect will be similar, but no blow out. Well done
Graal (95107) 2009-10-20 23:37
beautiful lotus flowers. Good shot. Pity that a few leafs are burned, strong light you had.

Budapestman (82620) 2009-10-21 2:16
beautiful composition and details, you took a splendid photo of these water lily, the colours and lights are very nice, Have a nice day!
josepmarin (57465) 2009-10-21 2:53
The color of the water lily is outlined finely among the silver leaves that float in the water, in this composition very well framed in that the reflections are a very important element, and that you have caught skillfully.
A beautiful image.
francio64 (38264) 2009-10-21 4:55
Ciao my friend,
bella composizione con ottimo contrasto cromatico tra le foglie colore silver e l'acqua colore verde su cui si vedono piacevoli riflessi.

Grandiose image de ces fleurs, un bel argent sur les fueilles, avec le beau violet-rose de fleurs, une merveille, superbe image.
Bravoe t amitié
Angshu (54521) 2009-10-22 6:09
Not easy shooting against light, but you've done quite well. Framing is nice, even though I'm a bit blinded by the silvery sheen on the leaves. I would have loved to see the temples along with the lily...could have been possible by choosing a farther and lower POV..possible?
patdeph (35748) 2009-10-22 9:18
the light has given to the leaves an incredibly beautiful silvered color,and the pink flower is perfectly placed in the frame!The result is very nice to look at!

pablominto (53744) 2009-10-22 23:13
The combination of reflections and reality adds attention value!
The pink lilies really stand out in this well balanced composition, attractive colours...
Longroute (19392) 2009-10-23 1:31
A very fine image and a well arranged composition. The silver leaves are so interesting and the intense red colour of the flowers creates a wonderful contrast.
A very good work.
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-10-23 1:37

Hi Subhendu, there a those special moments for a photographer when everything comes together perfectly and the moment is frozen in time momentarily. This is one such photo. Wow, you must be delighted with this beautiful and unique image, the light and reflections are flawless. Congratulations on an excellent posting, friend. Warm regards from Sydney, Lisa.

Fantastic shot with great focus and excellent composition. The colours are beautiful and the level of contrast and sharpness are good as well. Well done!
Thanks for sharing,

This is a stunning image of the lotus plants and the reflections of the trees. The morning light creating the silvery color on the leaves in contrast with the bright colorful lotus flowers is very effective and attractive. You captured and presented the scene well.
pajaran (47888) 2010-08-07 10:33
Lep jutarnji pogled na prelepi lotos.

Zelim vam dobar vikend i lepo vreme.
A beautiful morning view of the beautiful lotus.

All the best.
I wish you a good weekend and nice weather.
npecanhuk (60246) 2010-08-07 10:37
Sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format and composion focused on those water plants are all outstanding features in this photograph!
The color of those three flowers stands out in this image, but everything else also pleases me a lot (reflections, balance of light and shadow and so forth)!
TFS - congratulations!
