One of my orchids (flowers fell off the plant as I tried to photograph them leading to a better photo!)

Canon 77D. 60mm lens

Open to suggestions for improvement.

I really like the dark background because it shows off the orchid. My only comment would be to try and reduce the highlights on the flowers in order to bring out more detail and perhaps clone out the leave in front of the front most flower.   Posted: 11/07/2020 14:45:43

I like this Ginny. I like the dark background and the reflections on the vase. I too would reduce the highlights on the flowers. As far as cloning out the leaves in front, I am with you - not my skillset but I do see how that would add to the photo.   Posted: 11/17/2020 23:29:10

Gorgeous! I, too, really like the black background. I find the ripples in the vase distracting to my eyes, but other than that, I really love this photo.   Posted: 11/21/2020 20:08:07

I agree with Dan's comment. I am like you I need to work on my photoshop skills.   Posted: 11/22/2020 17:08:43

I broke the flower off the plant while I was trying to photograph it - hence the vase. I too need more photoshop skills!   Posted: 11/24/2020 21:07:40
