I'm not sure I saw your other version, but I like this one very much, guilli ~ it really gives a great sense of the surface of the water ~ 3D, as Redsy says. I like the way you've used the reds.

Lovely feeling of the water surface. However.........I still have issues with the composition. It is absolutely 50/50, half water, half foliage.

Why not consider a crop from the top?

Glad you all liked the water:D
Redsy thanks for input to shade and include more W/L bottom right.
Thanks EJ you might still be able to find the 1st one page 4/5?just called W/L on pond.
Jackie,shoot you are right,i had that in mind when i redrew it but i got so carried away trying to punch up the colour and contrasts i didn't notice,i still have 2 inches on the bottom to paint in more W/L and water and of course i can still crop of the top,thanks for bringing it to my attention:)

Great watery effect...I love how the lilies are really just floating there!
