Lily Pond

Original photo by GF
This image captures a lovely scene, a waterscape reminiscent of Monet. In a reflective green pool, on a bed of amber and jade leaves, the pointy pink petals of a lovely water lily bloom abundantly. Isn't it gorgeous?

This image was captured by my husband in India. It is tranquil and bright. I cropped the original image to balance the elements more to my liking. Then I sharpened the color by saturating the image until the pink of the lily's petals and the paler lavender in the pool's reflection became unmistakably a focal point and balance. Then I simplified the details with an art filter, softening the image in the warm light.
