Beautiful orchid, Jan! Is it growing on meadow or on some kind of palmhouse? Great first photo, welcome to TN!

Welcome TN,Jan!Focus on orchid is good.You can add some info about how you've shot and about the orchid,just advice:)Waiting for your more work

Very nice opening shot!
I love wild orchids very much especially Lady's Slippers Orchids. They grow in forest not far from my home.
I like composition and DOF. Pity that BG isn't very interesting, but still this photo is good and I like it.

Welcome to TN :-)

Welcome to TN, Jan. This is perfect, knowing that it's very difficult to get these kind of orchids details without their background. With a f/4,5 aperture, you've managed enough depth of field (DOF)to make it non distracting. Good also you have just a bit of the leaf. Seems it's a wild orchid growing on a chalky ground. More precisions on that would be appreciated, as we have these here too.

Hi Jan, what a beautiful flower. I'd like to know your camera. If you use a slr like ones you can make some zoom to the flower to get a better background.

A good first performance, Jan.
Nice composition and point of view.

I wish you the most cordial welcome on TN.
In the pleasure to admire your next posts and to read your notes and critics.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Jan
A really spectacular orchid, I like the "face" I always seein these flowers. A bit af a carricature of an old pirate.
I see the flash did not fire, it would have placed some nice light on the darker top three petals. TFS

Hi, Jan, this is an artistic shot. I like composition and colors. The blurred bg works well too.

A pleasure to look at.

Excelent capture of the Lady's slipper. I have the Yellow lady's slipper growing in the backyard.
Well done on this capture.
