Dendrobium flowers that we brought back from seeing friends in Thailand, it really does no justice to the Orchids that grow in that country where it is an Orchid lovers paradise and to see them in their natural sites just hanging from trees even the terrestial ones are everywhere especially Kang Kachan near the border with Myanmar. We are going back next year to photograph them in their natural sites and I cannot wait.

It looks to be a beautiful flower.
I think you could have just put the bottom one on it's own,as the top one seems to have a lot of glare, but that's just me.

You are right Hilary,the top one is overexposed and lost the detail of the flower centre.Taken some 3 years ago I have since got the hang of my MZS exposure system as I was always used to using manual focus and exposure on my old LX but have since succumbed to AF and on most occasions AP but when taking flower shots rely on an old green cloth which has the same exposure values as the Kodak grey card.Thanks for being honest Hilary.Regards Richard.

Good shot but i agree it would be more effective with a tight crop on the bottom flower! I like the colour of the background contrasts well with the flowers petals!

As Hilary mentioned, quite rightly so Topsy, it does indeed make a better shot with the shot of the bottom flower as the top has overexposed and lacks detail. I now shoot mostly individual florettes wherever possible and in general learnt by my mistakes especially with exposure. I think this is where digital has an advantage but thats another story.Thank you too Topsy, I appreciate your honesty.Regards Richard.
