This water lily was growing in a pot next to the swimming pool at our hotel in Hoi An, Vietnam. This was the first photo that I took of the flower. I used a cheap macro screw on lens filter that I bought off eBay and set my camera to its largest aperture setting. I then went on to take about 6 more, at different angles, using different settings trying to improve on my first shot. But the first one remained the best.
