Γεια σου ξάνθο
Εξαιρετική λήψη με πολύ ωραίο φωτισμό και σκουρο BG σε αντίθεση με τα ζωηρά χρώματα της ορχιδέας. Εξαιρετική καθαρότητα και όμορφα ζωηρά χρώματα με λεπτομέρειες.

Rare and beautiful flower, in an attractive color.
You have use your macro lens to great benefits here. The front flowers are sharp and then the rest of the flower head blurs nicely into the darker background, almost dream like. Perfect lighting too.
