this is a water lily shot with a Nikon D80 outside Gainsville’s (Florida, USA) Butterfly Museum. The light was perfect. Contemporary composition and a tiny saturation of the natural colors makes it a real eye-catcher.
I have sold at least one 8×10 print at last years church bazaar, but it has also been donated twice, to Artopia, an auction benefit for AIDS Research and also as as a thank-you gift to my church’s choir director. Both times it was matted and framed. Plus, we had as many choir members from the past dozen years as we could find sign the back.
