Hello Raimundo,
I guess I never realized how many different types of orchids there were until I joined TN. This particular species is new to me and yet quite lovely. They remind me of two little petite ladies each wearing a beautiful white gown. Nicely framed and showing excellent detail. White balance looks perfect allowing us to view them in their natural colors.

Very nice and sharp macro of two lovely orchid flowers.

AMAZING IMAGE with excellent exposure.
