Day 122 ~

Lily or Lotus flower?? I thought it was a lily. Aunt Karen says Lotus. She seems to know more about plants, weeds and flowers than I do so I'll go with her. What do you think?

I don't like that the exposure is so bright that you can't see the yellow in the middle of the white flower. I lowered the exposure but I lost the reflection, so I turned it back up. I think I could just fix the middle part of the flower, but it's a little too early for that much editing. Maybe later on today I will tackle that.


  1. When in doubt, you should always under expose. You can always adjust it in PP. Once it is overexposed, there's no getting it back. In iffy situations I use the metering option for three different exposures. I would call this a water lilly, but I don't know my flowers :) Beautiful shots and I love the lilly pads in the 2nd one.

  2. I think water lily and lotus are probably the same family. I think I just like the word lotus. Very pretty.

  3. I have always called it a lily. If its in the water its a water lily.
