Interesting effects on this one. I think it would work better by not cutting off the bottom orchid, losing the top turned one if you had to. Or just zoomed out a bit more to include both.
Otherwise Nice image.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
