Bonsoir Raimundo,
La publication est très intéressante mais l'insuffisance de profondeur de champ empêche d'apprécier la finesse des détails sur toutes la partie inférieure de l'image.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Raimundo, Strange shape orchids with nice yellow colours. The soft purple BG adds to their elegancy. Nice angle with original look.

Hello Raimundo,
What a gorgeous yellow orchid you have photographed. I love it's intricate shape and vivid colors. The blooms in the top center of the frame are very detailed and in super sharp focus.
