Hi Sandy,
very interesting image and its presentation. Excellent macro with one of my favorite flowers.
Details and colors good enough. And especially your POV is ok, congratulations.
Have a quiet Saturday,

Hello Sandy - Beautiful colors and good choice in using a vertical format. Even the background complements the subject matter.
Well done!

Hi Sandy,
Yes, beautiful column of these orchid flowers in accurate sharpness.
Very nice soft colors with good tones and good subdued lighting to mentain equal exposure.
Very nice green at the BG, it's creating some contrast!
Good POV and a neat presentation.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Sandy

Another superb photo of the attractive orchids, with good color, shallow dof, & sharpness. Smart choice of a vertical format. Tfs!

Hi, sandy. Lovely composition of these pretty orchid flowers with nice contrast, sharpness, DOF and colors. cheersa nd tFS.

Sandy I saw this one the other day, and meant to get back to comment.
I like the vertical composition there, with sharpest focus on the second from top flower. Colors are really nice .. no harshness. Love the soft bokeh of the background colors.
There are some astounding varieties of orchids .. and so many!
Did you get hammered with another snow storm this weekend? Hope you're digging out okay.
