Orchid


SmugMug Daily Link

I don't know how I got so lucky, but this beautiful orchid that I bought last year decided to put out a huge array of blooms again this year.  Here's a picture showing the orchid and the location of the photo shoot.

I took about 125 shots spinning the orchid around to try close-ups of different blooms.  The nice green background in my daily is the new growth on a Redbud tree off the left side of the deck.  This blue background is a kiddie pool that's sitting on the deck itself.  You know the blue;-)

I only took 4 shots with the blue background and although I loved the blue none of them seemed like what I wanted to post as a daily.  I might retry.  Maybe I can go clone out that little curl from the flower behind the front flower in this shot.  It's driving me nuts.

For some reason I really like the dangling nature of this shot too.

Here's a right to left unfocus that I think is kindof neat.

I tried and tried to get the curve just right...
