I've been playing with an old image and wonder if you prefer the first or second. This was one of my orchids, sadly it's never flowered quite a profusely since.

Is this a photograph or a very detailed japanese painting? Or a photograph of a very detailed japanese painting? Joking aside, it's a stunning image. Don

Just to be awkward I like the more saturated v2 but with the cloning out of the flower as in v1 TongueGrinGrin

Nice overall detail, Sandra. V2 is my preference, with the extra depth, but would like to see the flower removed, as in V1, as Dave says.

Both are excellent but for me it has to be V.2 by a whisker. Smile

I must say I prefer V2. There's more detail and the tones are lusher. That aside, oh...my...word...BEAUTIFUL SHOT of this stunning Phalaenopsis, Sandra.

As for why it hasn't flowered as well, it might be 'cos they were fed hormones/boosters before to make them very showy. Once they're not on the same diet anymore, they're less 'enthusiastic' Sad

I think that v2 has more depth to it. Very, very beautiful image.
