[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
No other plant family has such a spectrum, regarding shapes and colors of flowers, like the family of orchids. The size of the flowers varies from few millimeters (example of Lepanthes calodictyon) up to 20 centimeters and more per flower (example Paphiopedilum hangianum). The colour spectrum ranges from pale white to green and shades of blue to bold red and yellow tones. Many Orchid flowers are multicolored.

Hi Janusz,
Beautiful silvery white and a splendid heart of this orchid flower. Razor sharpness and such good light management. I like the tight crop to make us concentrate on the core of the flower.
A very neat macro.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hallo Janusz,

That's a BIG WOW for a in depth and detailed composition. Excellent impression has been drawn even white petals are around. An impressive macro shot, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

White is always a tricky color to get captured but you have managed it very well, Janusz!
Good details and nice contrast within this floral scene.
The POV and DOF are well done and colors are natural.
Good job!
