Hi James,

Welcome to TrekLens! Very nice macro of this colorful orchid. Detail, POV and DOF are all excellent. Well done, looking forward to your future posts.


Hi James,

Beautiful macro

It is a white orchid falenopsia, no?

Excellent and very precise use of the approach, with pleasant colors and balanced, the product of a very restrained use of flash and appropriate.

Welcome to TL!

I wish you many views, comments and many good points!

Good start!

Ciao James,

This is a piece of art, creative and skillfully done!
Excellent details in the core,
and the rich colours are well reproduced...
Tight framing adds impact by directing attention!
