Pink orchid

Orchids were only $15 at Walmart, so I finally got one. I'd love to get a photo even 1/10 as good as one of Lauren's. She's my orchid photo idol! Here's my try.

Oh wow, Becky, this is a wonderful shot! Love the fact that you caught all the blooms and the curve...very neat. What did you use for that black background? It really intensifies the orchids' color.

Wow! Very cool! And I think you got a lot better than 1/10th. ;)

Great picture! I love the black background. Our Wal-mart had a pitiful selection of orchids and many were dried out. You bought a nice plant with beautiful blooms.

This is gorgeous!!! I bought one of these a few weeks ago too, and I am afraid I might be killing it but I'm not sure what to do, LOL! Lauren is my flower macro idol as well- oh, to have a FRACTION of her talent! *sigh*
