Default water lily from below

this plant is in one of my aquariums. It grew to the surface in a day, not sure what it is exactly.

The quality isn't the best (I'll blame the camera, my DSLR doesn't arrive until tuesday) but what do you think of the composition?

I think its quite nice.... perhaps it would have been better if it was it was longer rather than taller... more like landscape with perhaps some fish or other plants blurred off in the distance or a fish nearby... otherwise i think its really nice.... here's a quick edit i made to show what i meant... its not great tho

Tiz, where did you get that photo? lol
usually on this forum, people crop others' photos, not add to them! well done.

I agree with the landscape oriented photo rather than vertical, although i'd crop off a bit more from the bottom and top and make it more panoramic.

perspective... the goldfish is closer to the camera than the water lily.
