Nice macro of this orchid. Not in the best quality, but Ron did good work with his workshop. Fine natural colours and sharpness. Excellent POV.

Excellent, beautiful the white in white color well shot.
Nice to see this beautiful flower from Brazil. Quite well captured against blurry BG, although little bit noisy. Color of flower looks natural, although little bit soft. I think f/16 to f/22 would give you stunning DOF.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
