Hello Jan, this is a great picture, very well composed, everything is sharp and clear. Thank you!

Hello Jan,
a most beautiful arrangement of those spectacular looking giant Cypripedium orchids. Colours, details, composition - everything is very fine here. Lucky man who knows a place to find them in the wild. I also know one place high up on the northern slopes of a prominent alpine mountain south of Vienna where they may be in blossom soon. Hopefully I don't miss them this year. But if so, I will only have to look at your beautiful image to have the pleasures to see them as natural as in life.
With thanks, and best regards,
