gorgeous colors! excellent how I can see every little hair-like structure! The composition seems a little off balance to me.... dunno,, as if the flower is falling somehow.. would like to see it either a bit more upright, or coming out of the corner more (maybe from bottom left).. Love the colors against the white..

Nice Paph. Too bad it was not centered...a bit too much off center for me but for an orchid lover, great flower...prize winner for an orchid show!

what is that anyway?

might've worked better against a slightly darker background.

This looks as odd as my submission. People have questioned it because they've not seen it themselves. Good capture and well composed. The top of the flower seems over exposed...but I like it anyway. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce :-)

The choice of background here I think would've helped to provide some separation at the top of the plant (I think it's a plant) with the white being around the edges and all. The plant itself looks excellent, well focused and lit. - Inspzil

Clear enough to see the hair on the flower. Beautiful color. Don't know that I've seen this flower before. A different crop than I would have done, but it works here. Nice job. 6 for it. PTL

Nice colour, and the negative space is nice too.

I love the colours and the details, but I don't understand the composition. Less cropping (more flower, more centred) would have worked better for me. 7 Jacko

I like how this stands out from the background. I wonder why it was cut off though. I wish you could see more of it. The line where it is cut off seems a bit awkard.

Nice. Not sure if I like it being 1/2 off the picture or not though.

Very pretty and excellent color. A little burned out at the top though. DPz

Awesome ladyslipper! My favorite orchids! A tad too bright for me at the top, but the colors are fab! Great photo! ~ cthenk

This is cool. I like the colors. I'd like to see more of the flower in the photo I think. The bottom is just so focused and then the top fades into the white which seems a little odd. Good job with lighting! ~indi

Beautiful! I almost wish that top edge didn't fade out, but a very effective photo, nonetheless. :-) 8 kathleenm

I feel we're missing out on the beauty of this flower. Bring it a little further into the frame (dont bring it completely in though you'll ruin the effect!). I just feel that too much of the flower lies in shadow. We're seeing the underside and the parts that need to be better illuminated. Great attempt!
