This orchid has been in bloom in our house for about 5 months. I don't usually do macro, but  heck, where is there to go these days? 

I used some Topaz filter  and some painting. Had fun anyway. Comments welcome.

What a gorgeous orchid – lovely texture, color, and detail, Cindy! The background plays an important role in this image, and I love how the back petals of the orchid fade gently into it. The placement of the orchid within the frame is optimal. Beautifully done, and a great way to remember this lovely orchid when the blooms pass!

You've really done this beauty justice, Cindy! I had one of these for a couple of years and it hardly stopped flowering in all that time, they are so lovely to have around. Beautifully done!

This shot is simply enchanting, so delicate and overwhelming at the same time.
Gorgeous colors, lovely composition, I love how the petals fade into the background.
