Artist's Description

Waterlilies growing in the lagoon at Brisbane Botanic Gardens (Mt. Coot-tha, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia), captured some years ago when I visited on the occasion of my sister becoming an Australian citizen. It was January and very hot and humid, but I loved the garden even though I had to keep wiping the perspiration out of my eyes between shots. Basic post-processing plus a light touch of Topaz Impression (two semi-transparent layers with customized settings and blending modes) to bring out the feeling of motion in the way light played over the lilypads. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 40-150mm zoom at 134mm [268mm equivalent in full-frame 35mm], f/5.0, 1/250 sec., ISO 100, afternoon sun, handheld)
