Hello Albert,
A fine presentation of the flowers of this dwarf Phalaenopsis from the Philippines. Technically top class with the use of flash providing a fine comtrasting BG.
Tropical orchids are very popular in Sweden, especially around Christmas.
So I wish you and your family a Happy festive Season!

bonjour Abert

un joli bouquet de fleurs sauvage avec un excellent POV,
excellent focus netteté et détails, l'utilisation du flash
et l'arrière-plan noir a mis en évidence l'avant-plan, TFS

Joyeux Noël et Bonne et Heureuse Année 2010

Bonjour Albert,
Un grand merci pour tes voeux. J'espère ton séjour en Begique auprès de ta famille se passe bien.
Je dois aussi te féliciter pour l'excellente qualité de cette image. Une véritable carte de voeux qui aurait certainement un certain succès si elle était vendue en librairie.
Tous mes voeux aussi pour une année nouvelle fructueuse et sans accrocs.

Hi Albert

Phalaenopsis is one of my favourite orchid types. Not just the flower, but the way how
those huge, leathery strap leaves grow. These P. schilleriana (note the correct spelling)
flowers are fabulous. They do look a bit full for a species and those red lips does make
it look like a cultivar, but whatever, they are most impressive. The exposure was well
controlled. The DOF covers the whole range of the inflorescence so the f/11 aperture
was spot-on to ensure lovely sharp details throughout. The colour rendition is great and
the pitch black BG really made the flowers pop out in the image.

I hope you enjoyed your stay with your family and friends over the festive season and
that we will still see much more wonderful material from you during 2010. Thanks for
the kind New Years message and to you and your loved ones I also wish a wonderful,
healthy, and a prosperous 2010.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Albert

Wishing you a Happy New Year.

I, too grow a few orchids, but nothing like your collection on your website - maybe showing my husband your site would be a good way to get him to stop complaining about the numbers I have!

Love the photo. the composition is excellent and they look really quite stunning here.


Bonjour Albert,
Très belle et très artistique publication dans laquelle les sujets sont bien valorisés par leur excellente opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
