Lilies are always so beautiful! I love the magenta color of this one - and your faded edges really make it stand out!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you so much, Elizabeth. I only wish the blooms would last longer than a few days.
a delicate composition with the focus and the soft treatment all around
Beverly Andrighetti: I found the soft treatment showed the bloom off to its best advantage, Ayush.
She seems to be smiling in the sun Bev... beautiful composition....petersmile
Beverly Andrighetti: A very poetic sentiment, Peter. Many thanks.

Wonderful selective coloring, Beverly. Summer????
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, Summer...(Sigh) Mother Nature just dumped another load of snow on us and when I look out my window, Ginnie, all I see is everything dressed in a coat of white. A winter wonderland.
Love the softened green and the gorgeous pink.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Mary. By the look of things today and the incredible amount of accumulated snow on the ground, it might be a long time before we see blooming water lilies in our pond again.
A beautiful Lily, so different to my rendition of one last Saturday.
Beverly Andrighetti: Many thanks. I like your treatment and see nothing wrong with the rendition you posted last Saturday, Brian.

Fantastic macro! The green of the lillie pads makes the pink even more vibrant & lush. I also like the fading at the edges.

I like the way the outer leaves fade away, giving emahasis to the water lily, Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: That seemed like the best way to present it, Lisl. Thank you very much.
Delightful presentation!

Super, excellent and the rest. You use PS Elements 10?
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you so much, Louis. No, I don't have PS Elements 10. I used some of the free options offered at PicMonkey for this one.

Aren't those flower just magic...Love the colour and a wonderful presentation.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Astrid. I'm longing to see them floating in our pond again, but, judging from the amount of snow we have on the ground, I don't think it will be any time soon.
Beautifully captured and rendered Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Very glad you like it, Fred. Many thanks.
