orchid by melxxx orchid by melxxx
normally, i'm not into plants and flowers. but my chief's orchid is just a beauty :-) we didn't had much to do on work today, so i took some pics of her plant. i did also some with black background but in the end i chose this one here. the white background makes the whole picture kinda "soft" and the purple inner of the bloom comes into its own. hope you like it too :-)

Orchids are such a beautiful flower, and this phtography is breathtaking. It feels like you captured the essence of the flower. I like the white bavkground, feels more pure, more porcelain or something. :D
Great work and definitve a :+fav:

This is just beautiful, different from many other flower pictures on deviantart. It reminds me of the oriental culture and I adore the whites with the center a lovely different color

I would have enhanced the purple more, it look a bit grey...

I love orchids, but I've never seen any as beautiful as those, I just love the colour of the centre of the flowers against the white petals- seriously stunning stuff :D

Ich stimme den einen Vorgängern ebenfalls zu. Der weisse Hintergrund macht das Ganze viel sanfter. Geniales Bild!

tolles bild. ich finde, der weisse hintergrund macht das bild umso interessanter. kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass es mit nem dunklen hintergrund besser wirkt wie addeg weiter oben/unten meinte. so ist das bild viel spezieller. (meine meinung...)
