Bonne prise et beau sujet par contre,les couleurs manque un peu d'éclat à mon avis.

Merci Niek et bienvenue sur TN.

Hi Niek
My favorite flowers, Orchids.
Beautiful picture and nice composition, a bit soft but nice never the less.

Beautiful,lovely colours.Nice composition.

Singapore botanical garden is very beautiful with all its orchids and here you have succeeded with showing every detail of an orchid, almost as vivid as in nature!
I like the softness in the background.

good composition.

Hi, Niek.
Good exposure and colors. Nice composition. Maybe a little bit more DOF.

Nice shot, but not enough DOF. shooting at f16 second orchid would be in focus.

Hello Niek,
I like the diagonal composition!
Close-up work is well done, intruguing details are well captured...
Those flowers never stop to amaze me, as they come in so many varieties... In spite this is a tropical flower in the origin we actually have two species growing wild in Norway...

Hello Niek,

With a photo of this nature you may want to change your PoV such that any difficulty in achieving a good DoF, where BOTH primary subjects are in focus, will be sufficient to provide detail and sharpness on both. I would also try to include all of the petals of both orchids.

The colours here ,maroon and purple, are awesome. Very natural. I like that!

HTH, Jay

nice Zypgopetalum. TFS Ori
