Serenity Pool
Lens: Pentax 100mm WR Camera: Pentax K5 

I was taking some shots of a lily pond at the local Botanic Gardens on a windy day and was having trouble getting a good image without large ripples.....not that the results were bad with the ripples but I wanted a more peaceful outcome.
I decided to try a ND400 filter and try and iron out the ripples. The exposure was 20 secs at F22 ISO 160.
The result shows the lily leaves seemingly floating on nothing and I believe gives the image a serene quality.
