Purple Orchid

This is a nice composition Wendy but it is slightly out of focus. Did you use a tripod or monopod whrn you took this image? When ever you get really close to a subject it is best to switch to manuel focusing, the auto focus cannot focus properly ehrn you get too close #1453009

Orchids are very tricky, and you did a great job.

I do agree with Arthur.
Having a tripod and using manual focusing.
What a drag to carry all that with you, but at times itīs worth it.

I think it is just a very narrow depth of field. The very center of the orchid is where the focus is. Maybe I need to expand the DOF. #10065297

Wendy, I do see your point of focus and I enjoy how the focus fades out from there. The colors are wonderful. #10066253
