Turkish "kelebek orkidesi". Very beautiful close up...

Hello Ori,
Great close-up of this beautiful Orchid. The colours are very beautiful, specially with the dark back-ground. Best regards,

Hello Ori,
Amazing colouration and patterns here.
A very beautiful orchid.
It would be interesting to see the whole plant too sometime.
Cheers & TFS

Excellent shot, Ori!

Here's a situation when the flash is very helpful to allow you shoot at f/51 to obtain that great DOF.

Well done!


Bonjour Ori,
Très belle macro.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Ori,

Another very interesting, attractive orchid flower. Nice composition, but seems to have been adversely affected by the extremely small f/stop, as fine detail seems to be a bit soft. Perhaps shooting without flash would help? Or if flash is absolutely necessary, then you might try reducing the output of the flash to get an f/stop that wouldn't result in severe diffraction softening.


Such a fine study in pinks and violets over a dark BG Ori, a perfect composition indeed!
