About the Image(s)

I think the flower is called the queen's slipper. An orchid. Original with my canon 6D and telephoto shot at 45 mm. ISO 2500, f-stop 6.3. 1/60 sec.I think I just brought out colors and highlights with Lightroom and photoshop.

Love this image. Just exquisite. Great detail and beautiful colors. I would not change a thing other than maybe give the image a little more real estate around the image.

Orchids are such unbelievably beautiful flowers, and this one is spectacular! The fade in the background really adds to the structure of the flower itself. The details are crisp. The coloring and slight haze is fantastic. I do agree that it could be a bit wider of a crop, but not too much. I really enjoy that the flower is really big in the frame.   Posted: 06/11/2021 10:59:36

This catches my eye and holds it. The background is just perfect. It blends just like the flower. The flower is clear and sharp. Colors are soft and restful.   Posted: 06/12/2021 15:28:36

Wonderful capture Harley. You nailed the focus and really got nice depth of field so we can see all the intricate lines and dots on this beauty. I like how the stem makes a lazy curve to the flower and, of course, the dark background. I think Linda's suggestion is a good one too. Nice work. Where did you find this flower?   Posted: 06/14/2021 13:43:32
