  1. Very beautiful and balanced capture! Posted 6 years ago
    1. This was a very hard day's work, Ferdy, my elbows are still feeling the consequences. I always have the need to be laid in front of orchids, especially these ones, the O. lutea was no more that 6-8cm height, very physically challenging, but so rewarding, because they are so beautiful, and a single photo is a vain but still a great effort to try to put that in evidence. Thank you so much for the feedback! cheers* Posted 6 years ago
      1. It was very well worth it, it is now eternalized :) Posted 6 years ago
