I thought I would post another Purple Diuris orchid that I photographed last year. Even the slightest breeze can tend to cause movement in these orchids.

This pretty orchid makes a pleasing composition Nicole. The V shape formed by the trailing projections works really well. Good BG.

Hey Nicole, I like the comp and the nice sharp details. I tend to like dark BG's so this works for me.

Beautiful image. I like the fine details. Normally I dont like dark backgrounds but in this image the BG helps the image stand out.

A fine point for improvement would be to trip off a little of the top since the material above the orchid doesnt do anything for the image. I like to have slightly more space below the image then at the top to balance the image.

Thanks for posting.
