I took a couple of my retired senior citizen buddies to Echo Park to get some shot at the lotus before the Lotus Festival. While walking around and tried to answer their questions about which metering mode to use I saw this falling apart lotus with the morning sunlight shined on it. I just had to aim my camera at it and press the shuttle release.

"I just had to aim my camera at it and press the shuttle release."
Why don't you just say that I sat at home, and let the point-n-shot camera took... a couple of my retired senior citizens to Echo Park to get some shot at the lotus before the Lotus Festival. At home, I pressed the remote control and all the photographic result here is a matter of accident!
I remembered last week NgocSon told me he read somewhere the long story how you invested your time to learn, to develop and to practice this simple technique. If you are not, then he is a BIG LIAR!

Hi, this picture is a very good one, Composition is excellent, it points the contrast between the colors of the lotus and the background out. It's very clear and very sharp. Well done
