Purple Haze

By moiral
Morning all. Took this shot the othr day when I was in the garden - that's right, the orchid was hauled outside to get natural lighting on it. This shot was intended to only focus on the central part of the flower. But still maybe a wee bit soft, have sharpened it slightly. I quite like how it has turned out.
I would like to give a very big thank you to Len1950 for his UA, very much appreciated, as were all your comments.
Now off to work soon.

I must admit I am not a fan of sharply focused flowers .... all seems to cataloguey to me
This is great and a wonderful presentation as a bonus
