Hi Achim,
A nice capture of this beautiful orchid flower at the night. Excellent use of flash and a nice dark BG. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Achim,
Nice capture. Good dark BG.
Love the water drops on the flower!

Hi Achim,
Nice photo with good compo, but I don't think it is an orchid !
It could be "Eucharis grandiflora", but without a front view I might be wrong
Was the plant on the ground or on a tree?
Kind regards

nice Eucharis grandiflora. not an orchid. TFS Ori

Merhaba Achim, wonderful flower composition with splendid sharpness, great contrast against dark BG, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Achim,
Beautiful capture of this white flower which is not an orchid. It could be a Lily of some sort, whatever it is it looks lovely. I like your POV, details are sharp and the water droplets are a bonus. Nicely composed too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Achim,

A good capture if the orchid which is covered with droplets of water. The point of view allow us to see the details and colors of the flower. The subject is well framed. Have a nice day.
