Golden Eyes

Uploaded: October 24, 2003


Unknown flowers taken at an orchid exhibit in Washington, D.C. They really do look like gentle, golden eyes, don't they? Indoor shot with flash; auto exposure; auto focus.

You make the flowers appear to not even be attached to the stems and leaves, it's really beautiful. I would use it as a screensaver anyday. #69068

Thank you, Danica! They do look a bit like stars floating free, don't they?

Yeah, now that you say that they do appear to be floating. As if they were on top of the water and the leaves were below the water. #243681
