Nice presentation of these flowers. They are well positioned and very colourful. Is that a spider web shinning in the bottom right corner?

Hola Josè:
Un hermoso cuadro con bellos colores y detalles. Me gusta el juego de luces y sombras de esta linda composiciòn. ¡Felicitaciones!

Hi Jose,
A beautiful composition in the vertical framing. The direct sunlight is soft and warm. A spot on exposure has the colors looking great. Nice sharp detail with a nice falloff in the DOF to a pleasiing OOF backround. Well done!

Hello Jose
This is a beautiful shot! I love the lighting effect here, it really brings out the nice detail on your orchids. Colours, detail and framing is wonderful.

Hi Jose

Conservative estimates claim there are ±35,000 orchid species and about just as many (if not more) hybrids. The Dendrobium nobile is probably the most commonly cultivated of all Dendrobium species and their natural distribution is: N.E. India to S. China and south to Laos and Thailand where it grows in full sun at altitudes up to 1,500m.

Your vertical composition was a good choice to show the beautiful inflorescence of these flowers. The warm colours of the natural light worked well, but (IMHO) a soft fill-in flash could have benefited to soften the shades running across the flowers without reducing the rich effect of the sun light. The DOF was well selected as it resulted in great details throughout the total range of the flowers and it highlighted the surface texture of the petals, sepals, and lips.

Well done and TFS.

Que linda foto Zeca!
Parabéns...as cores são lindíssimas, ótima luz e nitidez.
Você tem fotos lindas!


Jose August,
These are FANTASTIC.
I have registered many of them in Iguacu; many parrots too.
Your presentation has been done with "class" and TASTE.
Love the framming and the "capture" of the lights.
Nice to have run into you. All the best, Mario.
