Very pretty, Marianne. The colours are lovely and you have captured the orchids beautifully. The flowers are a little soft, however Orchids are delicate and I don't think the softness is a huge negative.   Posted: 09/19/2021 18:12:06

Thanks, Gail. Since you like the colors, I thought you might get a chuckle from the original, attached.   Posted: 09/19/2021 20:44:49

The crop seems a bit tight to me and now seeing the original you definitely had some room to leave a little space to breath. I'd say you enhanced the colors well compared to the original image. Are you using a tripod, seems a bit soften the final processing. Might partially be you needed a deeper depth of field.   Posted: 09/22/2021 22:09:42

Thanks, Matt. I didn't I have a tripod with me on this trip. I agree about the tight cropping. Attached is an expanded version.   Posted: 09/22/2021 23:15:45

I'd agree about the second crop. The orchids are beautiful and the enriched color is definitely a plus.   Posted: 09/23/2021 11:31:38
