I see you've shot this with my favorite lens. This reminds me of some images I take of flowers sitting in my window as the sun goes down. Nicely composed using the theory of thirds. Good bokeh.

Love the light on the curly glass but find the flower a little dark. Love the composition. I would personally would have been tempted to clone out the tie because for some reason it seems to attract my eye.

Lovely use of light, Chris, and a beautiful spiral. I liked the way you limited the DOF so that all the attention is on the plant.

Cheers,

Jack

Ah, you spotted my concern! We have many orchids (I call them stress plants because of the maintenance they need) with curly climbing thingies but this one had the best structure for a photo but its a really dark colour and I wondered if it detracted from the spirals..... The tie is a good spot. Many thanks for the comment, much appreciated, Chris

Many thanks Jack - the problem that you have identified is that the viewer's focus should have been on the spiral in this case! Thanks for the comment, Chris

Many thanks. Its a really good lens. I use the GF1 with the 20mm pancake a lot as I really like the combination and also the ability to shoot sooc in square format. The 45mm lens is exceptional for portrait, shallow dof like this and also a short/medium telephoto. I have been following a family of foxes for a few months this year and on one day I only had the GF1 and 45mm with me and its one of the best/sharpest shots I have of them!
