Found this bee flitting around around the aquatic flowers, used a high telephoto with shallow depth of field, f 5.6 to achieve this effect. Liked the Provia like blue in the water and retained that while processing.

An amazing image VMR. Crisply defined flower in the middle with a bee there and flanked by out of focus flowers makes this image for me. It would have lacked some impact if you had stopped down to render other two flowers also sharp !! Brilliant decision on choice of the aperture here which gave this image a very unique perspective in my view. Contrast difference between flower and background water adds a lot to the frame too. Thanks for sharing..

Brilliantly seen image! excellent execution as well! A very simple and effective composition. The mild tones overall and the less contrast are making it feel better. Thanks for sharing.

loved the balance in this image. there is 2 dimensional balance with the flanking flowers, a 3 dimensional balance with the depth of field, color balance with yellow radiating into white and blue... i guess i could go on and on :)
superb image. thanks for sharing Sir.
