    Have seen some of the similar ones! And many of them bloom in pink! You have captured the tone very well, Kalyan. Exactly where is the location for this particular photograph/plant?

    Great velvia like colors kalyan. Nice monsoon feel. I doubt if d300 or d200 will be able to match up to this color rendition.

    Kalyan, this picture is really breath taking.

    Really liked the still water and lush green leaves with a lonely flower.
