    ok.. first off... the silhouette shot is ok. the idea is there.

    but your subject's not standing out due to the jetty taking up half of the frame.

    plus i feel, if you've used a landscape orientation it'll look nicer. or ND filter with slow shutter in portrait mode to catch the symmetry.

    but for the above suggestion... you need to move closer to the edge to get rid of the distracting pier

    Point Noted. thank you so much. When I took the shot My intended was to have the pier lead the eyes to the lotus. but I guess it did not work out. Thank you for your advice.

    if you're thinking of leading lines, use lines that are straight or curved. in your image, the lines zig zag all over, with the pier as a distraction

    keep shooting

    Given the title morning lotus I would have an image of a lotus with rays of morning light on them. Hence the silholette idea is a bit weird for me. I thought it would be possible to do HDR - merging photos which lotus is slight more exposed and this photo, so that more details can be seen.

    I believe it should be 7 days after this post. Not totally clear. Maybe the mod can clarify.
