Very beautiful!

But are you sure it is of Lotus flowers? To me they look like water lilies? Lotuses usually have a visible seed pod in the middle of the flower?

Whatever it is, it's not a lotus and whatever it is, it's BEAUTIFUL.

How did you get the dark background?

Thanks Goldar,callmebali and wise for the comments!

Someone pointed out that it is a waterlily.

The background is actually the dirty dark pond. I did play with levels to brighten the flower too, and that may have darken the background.
