While this one is quite nice, I would have loved to see one of the flowers showing the clearly labellum...

All the best,

Ishi

Ciao Gerard, lovely orchid with fantastic colors, splendid light and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Ciao Gerard
Bella composizione floreale, peccato però non completamente a fuoco, forse dovresti caricare meno la cornice perché distoglie lo sguardo dal soggetto un saluto.
Nico

Ciao Gerard,
come mai non hai usato il cavalletto ? visto il tipo di soggetto che rimane sempre fermo (salvo vento) e hai tutto il tempo necessario, contrariamente alla caccia fotografica di uccelli.
Forse dovevi controllare la profondità di campo.
Cordialmente, ciao Vanni

Hello Gerard,
Lovely flowers with superb colors and very good details. I like this nice composition taken from a good low POV. Excellent clarity and sharpness as usual.
Thanks for sharing!
Marius.

Salut Gérard

cadrage vertical approprié, la lumière difficile
