[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This orchid normanii was one of the prettiest orchids to be found on Sardinia. A quite large flower and gorgeous colors. I practiced my photoshop skills on editting on the L A B color mode, increasing color a bit and add sharpening on the lightness channel, I'm quite happy with the result
