Hello Luis,

You have taken a good macro here.
There are lots of interesting details and the colours are fine.
It could do with a little sharpening and cropping from the bottom so the flower is not quite so central.
That would improve composition.

I am sorry, I cannot do a w/s for you as I have had my allocation for the day.

kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hola Luis
Belle composition de qualité pour cette superbe fleur. J'apprécie les teintes agréables et la bonne netteté.
Compliments et merci...JP

Hi Luis,
This is an amazing flower and has been captured along with all the amazing detals. great colors against an OOF BG. Excellent composition.


Hi Luis,
I think that this photo of yours is more over exposed than lacking sharpness,however sharping will not hurt the image.I have done a workshop modification of your photo to show you what the workshop can do to help you along the road to better photos.One thing to keep in mind is this-how a photo looks is a purely subjective thing and what pleases one's own eye might not another's.I hope that you like my effort and find it useful.Thanks for sharing this lovely little orchid and who can blame you for posting it again. Bob

Hello Luis,

What a beautiful flower, great POV the BG is also very good


Scolopax is without capitals. Scientific rule... With cotrasting soft BG and interesting POV, i should say that it is a successful orchid capture.

Olá Luis,

Mais um excelente trabalho.Parabéns.
