Poor orchid. Looks like you chopped one bloom off to attain your goal. I love the way your background fades from blue to black.

Perfect lighting, and a lovely backdrop. I like this very much.

Excellent lighting, crisp clear focus, clean colors, and interesting composition (one cut stem) separates this from all the other flower shots.

Beautiful lighting on this.
A Well-Deserved 9!

Sharp details of the orchid flowers. I like the lighting which shows off the translucent properties of the petals. Also, the orchids that face the bottom of the frame could use some light from the bottom to show off details. The short stalk near the top and the fact that the rest of the plant is missing is odd. I think it would have looked better with the supporting stalk running to the edge of the border rather than have the flowers floating in air.
