A trio of lovely pink waterlilies captured in the Chinese Garden at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California, USA. Because the afternoon sun was strong, I underexposed to avoid blown-out highlights and added texture in post-processing. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 169mm [338mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/500 sec., ISO 200, afternoon sun, handheld) Post-processing in Topaz Simplify and Topaz Adjust; texture (Fauve Rainbow) from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
