Birmingham Botanical Gardens, September 2005, F4, 1/180 sec, ISO 100. The midday light was so bright -- no clouds in the sky -- so I set up the camera on tripd on delayed timer, popped out my handy little diffuser I learned about in Brenda Tharp's Macro Class and got this photo. Adjusted levels, sharpened the waterlily and ran through Virtual Photographer's radiant filter.
