Yellow Phalaenopsis Orchid

Pin It

I find orchid flowers difficult to photograph. It's not the taking of the picture that's hard, it's that orchid flowers, as do other flowers such as bulbs, iris, etc., have so many nuances of color and iridescence; what I see with my eyes often does not come out in a photograph.

Anyway, I put this beautiful subject against a kitchen cupboard that was suffused with morning sunlight and took about 30 photos.

These are the best of the bunch.

Monday Mellow Yellows will be aglow with yellow photos this week.  Go take a look.

I wish I wasn't an orchid killer .. been through a few .. decided to stop the madness! LOL
I still love to see pictures of them and yes I understand what you mean about your eye seeing more detail than the photography is picking up .. usually ironically enough, it is the other way around eh ?
Very pretty !
