a very beautiful shot
I like the darkening at the corners, is this the light or have you added some vignetting? whatever, it helps focus the eye on the main flowers.

I like the concept of this image but to me the fg sharp flower is oversharpened...pull it back on the usm and you will like it much better

Tom, yep - VERY wet knees! Smile

Blackbird - a bit of vignette added to concentrate the viewer on the main subject Smile

jmb - thanks for the feedback. Looking at the RAW, there isn't too much difference between that and this, and I didn't apply that much USM. It might be that the orchid appears over-sharpened because it is soaking wet, and it is something to do with reflected light - maybe?

Appreciate the comments folks, thanks.

Lovely selective focussing in this meadow shot. Shows the main flower well in a nice soft setting.
