Hey Sandy,
Light and comp are both excellent. As this was your orchid....I would have been tempted to prune the back blooms......but in this case they don't distact at all! Ver nicely composed and as I like my crops tight.....I'm even fine with the LH side....very nicely done!

Hi Sandy, I like the HK look with 3 flowers in the front.(I like odd numbers) You minimalized the backround flowers so they are not overly distracting and used pleasing even lighting. The buds are a plus to the image.
For my taste the image is a bit tight L&R and if this were mine would open it a small bit. Nicely done!

Although the back buds being cut off would have made for a cleaner image I also like them being included here because it does appear to be very natural. Excellent use of flash and exposure...your whites feel just right and there are no harsh "flash" residue that I can see. Lovely control of the yellows as well.

I like tight crops but I would also add a tiny bit more left and right.

Like the delicate look, I'd lose (or make it thinner) the green border addition.

A very nicely composed image - sorry still not too keen on the frame but having said that I think it looks well chosen:)

Hey Sandy, I think you did a great job on the comp, good sharp details and only thing that I notice that hasn't yet been mentioned is the whites have a blue cast, which not sure if it is the laptop screen I'm viewing on, as no one else has mentioned it. Very well done.

Gorgeous orchids! They seem perfect. I like how they fill the frame. Beautiful image. (I do think there is a bit of a blue cast.)
