The orchid greenhouse is one of my favorite places at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. On this visit I was able to capture a pristine spray of moth orchids in what looked like a jungle setting. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 125mm, f/8, 1/100 sec., ISO 400, heavily filtered afternoon sun, handheld) The subtle background texture (Fauve Forest) is from the Artiste set of Leslie Nicole's French Kiss Textures. Explore 11 July 2013 - thank you!

Thank you, Joan! They are probably the most common of orchids, but the light was just right to make them look special.

Thanks very much, Lorraine! The light coming through the greenhouse roof fell nicely onto the flowers, and some slight texturing made the background a little darker to further enhance the light on the flowers. I'm feeling a little better day by day - thanks!

Janet, thank you very much! I helped the fade just a bit with a subtle texture that darkened the background a little. :)
