I think that the opening bud makes this image.

Very nice, I think the composition makes the image.

Well you might say I quite like florals and Orchids present one of the biggest challenges for DOF and finding a reasonably clean BG especially when in a planted garden.
I like your shot a lot, I agree the open petal bloom is unique. Though the red in the BG is a little distracting it sets the stage that this Orchid was in a planting and for that reason the BG works nicely
I have one thing that bugs me a bit and seems to interrupt the nice comp/flow you have and that is the vertical stem goint up to the Orchid flower, might be something to consider cloning out if you care to consider?

Very pleasing image, well presented and photographed IMO

Karl,

Based on your suggestion, I quickly cloned out the vertical stem. I think that it's just about right now, looking, as you put it, "relaxed".

Thanks

Good job , I would have to say at least for me, this is one of the hardest flowers to get a good comp on.

Well exposed beauty here Martin! My only nit is the cropped off stem leaving the frame to the right. I don't seem to mind the vertical stem as it "supports" the flower. Great job with the color!

I understand your take Greg though the one exiting is by far more 'attached' to this flower as shown by its sharpness For me Orchids seem to be more of an arching type of display than a vertical one.........If the vertical one was left in place and the horizontal one removed to me it would look odd

Agreed Karl! I would't ask him to "remove" the horizontal branch, just try to capture more of it when taking the next shot. That's all

Thanks everyone. I've learned a bit here - basically to be careful!
