These were taken today at my summer cabin. The inlet of water is surrounded by trees, it is quite shady... wish I had more light to take better pictures. Hope these suffice for now.

Mmm, nice - the first one seems to be floating in space. Further proof that the kit lens (I think that's what you're using, right?) is pretty darn fine.

Hiya! Yes, I am using a kit lense... Just got my camera last month... I took this photo, in a dark inlet of water, overshaddowed by trees... I waited for moments when a glimpse of sunlight would make it through... thus the darkness of the background.

Glad you liked the photo!

Firstly, this is a wonderful shot!

I like the third crop, the first also, but prefer maybe a little tighter framing but not as much as in the second..

Paljon kiitoksia (Many thanks). I appreciate your advice! Had a lot fun shooting this lily. Kaikkea hyvää (all the best).
