Hi Friends:
Visually similar to Orchids this Cymbidium Caitlain type looked really pretty in the setting sun light...
Low F stop to create a good enough DOF and leaving it 2 stop under gave me this result.
I have increased sharpness and saturation a tad bit to get a reasonable visual effect! Yes! this is with a Macro 50mm lens.

Hi David

Soft and tender.
This is superb, first class presentation.
Well use of light, flower illuminated and darker tones surround.
Very neat job David, an image i would be proud to take, tfs

stv ;o))

A beautiful floral posting with such amazing colors and contrasts, Amarjeet ji!

Great details of the flower and perfect clarity with such refreshing colors of this blooming beauty.
The light and exposure are well handled, and POV is excellent which gives the flower a kind of 3-D look.
Well done!

Have a nice weekend.
