From the Lotus Pond in the Montreal Botanical Garden. I wanted to highlight the subtle elegance of the light, shapes and patterns, without the distraction of bold and vivid colours.

    and so you did!! superb work ,, the bw is perfection!!!

  • Thank you Linda! I was so hoping it would work! I have polarized photochromic lenses on my eyeglasses and looking at the polarized viewer of the Nikon can be tricky. Sometimes, when it’s very sunny, I can’t see anything I did before I get home and view the photos on my monitor! LOL!
