Workshop Note
Well describing classical capture. Tried a little workshop to increase the orchid's set off against the background.

Photoshop Elements:

1) Saturation all colours increased + 12
2) Saturation green decreased - 30
3) Saturation yellow decreased -12
4) Flower selectively sharpened (lasso tool, sharpening filter)
5) Noise reduction, scratch and dust removal r=1 selectively on BG (magic wand selection tool, tolerance 30%)
6) Softening filter selectively on BG (magic wand selection tool, tolerance 30%)

Hope you enjoy.
