Very attractive. I find orchids difficult, the petals are thick, fleshy, rigid - they have a static, plasticky feel. This conveys exotic delicacy, and gives the petals the lightness and fragility of butterfly wings.
Maybe just a tiny bit more brightness and contrast needed? To convey the clean light. Plus a bit of very discreet burning on the centre of that foreground flower. Mainly to distinguish it from the background, bring it forward.

When I saw the thumbnail, I thought, more playing about, but I have to do a U turn. Really rather effective. It's a good job you got the centre of that main bloom sharp, though. Otherwise it would not work.

Its a good Orchid shot. To me, the top, out of focus flower is too dominant, - especially its colour being deeper, it tends to distract. It appears unbalanced, or top heavy.


The treatment youve used works overall. I would tweak this to change the balance to the lower flower, by de-saturating, blurring, and especially cloning out the stem of the upper flower exiting the frame.


Ive uploaded 2 mods, both have some added space on the right.

Nice work
