Hi Jose.
I like your next artistic flower shot, created with great taste and skillfulness. It is composed and illuminated perfectly. Colours are delicate and pleasant to eyes. You managed to select the DOF precisely. Smooth passage from well detailed parts of picture to blurriness is amazing and elegant. Bravo and my best wishes.
Alexei.

Your great sense of composition is in evidence here, Jose.
The orchid looks very nice in the gentle light on a cloudy day.
TFS.

Hello Jose!
Another great plant shot and another very good quality photo! I like this "spring" presentation. As for me it is very optimistic photo :)
TFS and have a nice weekend!

Hola José Miguel,
Preciosa las orquídea que nos presentas!
Como amante y cultivador de orquídeas que soy, me llamó en seguida la atención la foto de este tipo de variedad europea, desconocida para mi.
Son muy particulares en cuanto a forma, y la variación del color amarillo del labio principal.
Llegaste a notar si tenía aroma?
Excelente la composición de esta bella flor.
Enhorabuena y gracias por mostrar la foto.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Buenas Jose, una composición muy bella, con esa suavidad de texturas conseguidas. Una maravilla. Un abrazo.

José Luis.

Por aquí la tengo tb pero sin el amarillos jeje.Veo q las orquídeas Cordobesas están a tope. Yo particularmente tengo problemas con el enfoque en ellas pero poco a poco. Buen testimonio de esta bonita planta.
Saludos y gracias como siempre por tus comentarios.

Hello Jose its a lovely image the softness is nice with the head very detailed and sharp nicely composed and nice colours tfs rgds necip

Hello Jose, :)

Such a beautiful Orchid, I have never seen an Orchid dressed in yellow! Wonderful exposure, showing great DOF and vivid colours. Very well done, as always a pleasure. Thank You for sharing!

Ange

Hello José,
presentation in perfect harmony of colours and composition.
An orchid that I have never seen before. The set of yellow and green petals around the dark brown and silvery centre that obviously pretends to be a sitting bumblebee complette with wings folded look very usual. The softness of shallow depth of field works well for focussing the attention on the upper blossom, and for creating a very gentle, pleasant atmosphere. Very beautiful. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter

Hi Jose, lovely flower with splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Jose,
Nice showing of this beautiful orchid. Excellent sharpness and color saturation. POV and composition are great.

Hi Jose, nice to hear from you again. Beautiful gallery you are creating, Good sharp focus on this one but I also like the way you have created a soft focus around the flower aswell to avoid any distractions in the background. Good lighting and exposure and also very well composed.
Best wishes.

Hi Jose

What a lovely shot of this beautiful flower.
The colors here are really good and the contrast between the black and yeallow is as wonderful as always.
I also like you POV on this photo as well as the shallow DOF that you used, that blurrs the BG very nicely.
A simple composition that works really well here.

Bravo and TFS

Hola Jose,

La composición buena con las otras dos flores en el fondo.

Joli présentation du coeur de la fleur.
Bonne journée.

bonjour josé
je reviens sur celle-ci pour ses couleurs et le crontraste entre ces dernieres.
la netteté est bonne sur la fleur du haut mais je trouve la profondeur de champs assez limité.

Hello Jose !
I don't understand why I have missed this wonderful picture ! This flower is truly gorgeous, and you have captured itperfectly ! Orchids are always beautiful, but I like the vivid yellow color on this one, and his shape is nice too. Details, colors, composition, blurred BG, everything is excellent.Very well done !
Valerie.
