Very interesting flower. I like the composition. If this were mine I would tone down the highlights in the whitish petals, and darken the background a bit.

Fine image of a lovely orchid. The light looks challenging - a diffuser would have helped reduce contrast.

Hi

A fine close up of an interesting plant - as mentioned diffusing the light upon the subject, or even throwing a shadow onto to it, can often help in crafting a more flattering lighting effect for plants


But still great to see as it is


Wishing you the best in the new year
Matthew
