Orchids are my favorite flowers, somehow we do not have the green thumb for them. I found this at my relatives home. Enjoy and have a wonderful Sunday. Cropped, sharpened and re sized in PP...Enjoy

A superb shot with amazing details and contrast against a well blurred BG, Vic!
Light and exposure are just fantastic, and colors are natural.
Good approach!

Best wishes,

Hi Vic,
A very sharp capture of this orchid flower. Perfect details in the heart. Good exposure on the whites. A fine tight crop to let us admire from such a distance this delicate flower.
My best regards,
