Three words pop into my mind when I see this image:
"Undulating" and "Georgia O'Keeffe."
You are getting extraordinary results on this orchid. Bravo, Barbara.

Barbara, this is beyond incredible! I just love the white surrounding the purple. I wonder what sort of lighting set up you used? This image and yesterday's and just extraordinary! Spotlight photo in my book. 5 stars! So unusual, so well thought out! A real work of art!

This one is also very nice but I must admit that I like the previous a bit more, mainly because of brighter and more vivid colours. This one is more subdued. Still great work!
