Well, not the first one I've shot, but the first that I've been able to re-bloom!

Thanks for having a look!

Hmmm, I wonder how this would look on a black BG

Though I am not a fan of brown BG's at all, I always enjoy a pleasing shot of an Orchid. I am impressed but not surprised by your ability to re-bloom, I am l stopped buying them because I felt bad killing them

Take care buddy

Good looking shot Greg. If the brown was darker, would it make a difference in how the flower stands out? Congrats on the re-bloom. I won't even spend money on an orchid as I know I would kill it.

Thanks everyone. I didn't spent too much time on this as I just wanted to share that I didn't kill at least one of my orchids I actually have three that still have healthy leaves, so my fingers are crossed those too will rebloom, then I'll have to figure out how to get them in bigger pots....without killing them

As for the background, it's actually a piece of gold velvet that I got on the cheap, mostly for some portraits, so I thought I'd give it a try here...

Cheers,

Greg

Beautiful shot. And I like the brown/gold background with this flower. Seems to work to me.

My wife does quite well with orchids, reblooming them that is. I photograph them; she grows them. They don't seem to be "hard", but they do seem to have very specific taste in watering and sun.

Thanks.

Thank Dorian, Dave and Kenny!

Dave, yeah, they don't seem to require much but a weekly watering and some "food" once in a while, but I think the climate has more to do with it than anything, and it stays relatively cool where I am. Also, when I see "UC" I can't help but wonder if that mean University of California?

A really nice image of a lovely flower, Greg.
I too feel ambivalence about the background. It looks fine, and yet I wonder what might look better.

Nope. Sorry, UC is for "Union City", not University of California.

We keep our orchids inside. I would suppose that if you kept them out of south facing windows, you should be able to do the same in Huntington Beach. I don't know enough about them to comment on what would happen if you had them outside. You shouldn't get much if any frost, which would be very bad for them.
