[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Takeing good photographs of pure white objects with lightand shadow areas often turns to be very tricky.
Bright light, sunshine or the use of a flash often leads to overexposed or eben burned out areas because white doesn't absorb much light and often even reflects it. Today was a dark grey morning and so I tried to make the best of the pale light by looking inside this orchid in front of a north facing window with my macro lens.

I have found cloudy days the best for shooting flowers.
You have done an exceptional job of getting the exposure just right.
Love the symmetry obtained within the interiors of the orchid.


One of the best closeup shots from Orchid I have ever seen on TL, lieber Thomas!

The most difficult color, white, to capture in its original tone is so professionally captured in this exceptionally beautiful work.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and clarity is superb.
Well management of exposure as well.

You chose well and wow you have captured my favorite flower gorgeously!! Thank you for the tip too I usually give up on white things for the reason it burns out Definitely going on a hunt for white on a cloudier day now!

Sublime symmetric composition with perfect exposure and sharpness. Beautiful work!
