Hi Tsilla,
A very nice spotted pink orchid in accurate sharpness. The black BG boosts forth the lovely flower.
Good lighting and an agreeable face to face macro.
Good framework and my compliments for this neat presentation.
My best regards,

Hello Tsilla,

This is a fine, sharp capture of this very attractive orchid. It's shape, patterns and textures are clear, and it shows up well against the contrasting, dark b/g.
However, for me, the heavy frame takes away some of the emphasis of the lovely flower.

I have done a w/s, rotating the flower into a more diagonal composition and with a very simple, border.
I hope you approve of the changes.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

What a great beauty you have presented in this well framed composition, Tsilla!

The colors are so refreshing and focus is spot-on!
The sharpness and POV are excellent and frame suits the composition in a nice way.
Well done.


Excellent presentation of this beautiful orchid. I just took some pictures of this same kind of orchid at the Bellagio Resort & Casino but I not sure how to present it. Yours has a great dof with sharp details. Nice colors. Well done, tfs.

what a lovely and colorful capture of the pretty orchid! :-)
the black background is perfect as well as details and sharpness.
now i am really looking forward to visiting the Utopia Park beginning of november when i am in Israel.
best wishes & take care, thor.
