I like this..I'm still trying to figure out what part of the Lily...I'm not flower knowledgeable ....but I know what I like and I like this picture.

Also good to see a film camera...particularly the old Icon....the Pentax K1000.

Unless it's a typo and it was really shot with the K100D (as I couldn't find any EXIF in that image). ;-)

I'll see if we can find the original submission and recheck the camera model entered to make sure that's not just a typo on our part (K100D versus K1000).

See the photographer's comments on today's POTD page:

"This was shot at the St. Louis Botanical Gardens at the end of a long day shooting, thinking I was going to walk away with nothing of interest. You can see the water convexing against the lily and clouds in the reflection of the water. --David"

Jim,

I got the Pentax K1000 ID, from the pix in the home page....the one that materializes on the picture.

I know. That's where I got it from when posting this thread. ;-)

But, it may be a typo (the staff member that entered it may have made a typo when copying it from the original entry form). I've already asked that they check into it (and I haven't heard back yet).
