The backside of these orchids is lovely. I love their see-through quality.

@givethemhell: Thank you, Eva. That's what I liked too.
this has to be my favourite shot of your flower series so far. the back-lighting is superb. this is a great study of a flower from a point of view that most people don't consider looking at. maybe I will go about looking at the backs of flowers more often now!

Beautifully worked in sepia! The new tonality gives the image elegance and a dreamy effect! I really like the presentation!

@Japanalia: Thank you, Gabriela. I was hoping for the effect you describe.
I love this monochrome processing!

@Craig: Many thanks, Craig.
A beautiful image, Michael. The subtle sepia is a perfect choice for this well composed, soft image. The orchids are truly lovely with their translucent quality and natural symmetry so beautifully examined here.

very nice tone selection and composition
26 Mar 2008 5:14pm
@yiannis krikis: Thank you, Yiannis.
It is the translucence. I stared at the shot trying to figure out why I liked it so much and I think that is it. And the composition with the dark base and light top. And the tones. Oh, everything.
26 Mar 2008 5:29pm

@Tracey: Thank you, Tracey. i appreciate your comment.
This is a beautiful shot, the mood is great. And going through your pictures, I realized you're using a Point and Shoot camera! Great compositions, selection, and lighting.

@Andres Abon: Thank you, Andres. Yes, these days you can do a lot with a P&S. They have lots of option settings. The Optio from Pentax is an especially good one. Also the processing is just as important as the camera.
Gasp![first reaction]Gosh[2nd reaction]man this is beautiful.i can imagine seeing this framed up in a nice resturant,or a lovely card for somebody:)

@Lorraine: Merci, Lorraine. Le compliment semble encore plus gentil en français. Je ne sais pas vraiment le français bien mais je sais assez pour vérifier si Babel Fish fait vraiment un désordre hors de la traduction.
Quand je suis allée sur le site hier soir, ça ne fonctionnait pas...
Beaucoup de douceur et de délicatesse dans cette photo. J'aime bien la transparence qui laisse deviner la texture des pétales.
27 Mar 2008 9:24am
@Evelyne Dubos: Merci beaucoup, Evelyn. Je trouve également que le site Web parfois ne fonctionne pas.
Beautiful tones...beautiful light...a wonderful capture..bravo

@StarCosmosBleu: Thank you, Marcel.
The problem with being 43rd in line to comment is that it has all been said! This is a truly dreamlike image and the sepia treatment has reinforced that for me.
