[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The generic name means "Phalaen[a]-like" and is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carl Linnaeus to a group of large moths; the flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight.[4] For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.

They are native throughout southeast Asia from the Himalayan mountains to the islands of Polillo, Palawan and Zamboanga del Norte in the island of Mindanao in the Philippines and northern Australia. Orchid Island of Taiwan is named after this genus. Little recent information about their habitat and their ecology in nature is available since little field research has been done in the last decades.

Olá Roberto,
Excellent use of the so-called outside the frame. This here provided the feeling of floating and highlighted.
Wonderful presentation.

Hi Roberto

A stunning photo of flowers peering out of the frame giving an almost 3D appearance. The gentle colours work and the focus and exposure are both good.
Personally, I would have preferred a greater depth of field, but obviously you didn't want that because you chose a wide aperture of f4. My only other comment is that the petal at the back is too close to the edge of the frame.
Still a stunning photo though.

  • Great
