Another view of orchids
Phaelaenopsis are one of the most popular and easy to grow orchids. We have several in our house and I see wonderful photos of them all over. So I tried a couple of things to be a 'little different'.
The wild looking one is an HDR of 5 images done with Photomatix Pro and making it very 'edgy'. The other, more natural looking one was taken at night with an LED headlamp providing a bit of light. Both were taken using a Nikon D300 on tripod, 18 to 200mm lens with the Canon 500D closeup lens. The HDR was at 200mm and the other is at 90mm. Fun to play and see what one can come up with!!
