I have a few orchid shots myself :) Although it's a white one. Was this one actually violet, or did you modify the color?
Cute picture :)

» Image analyze «

I do not often comment pictures in depth, but this really caught my eye at the first glance.

Let’s start of with the image composition where you have succeeded in taking good care of the lines, curves and shapes to get more depth for the picture.

This together with well weighted foreground, middle ground and a nice background makes it interesting to analyze even further and also leads the eye into the picture which an very important element.

The colors are beautiful mixed as you have been able to get some of the contrast colors just so right as it can be. This helps in setting the mood of the picture.

As the eye is natural drawn to contrast people tend to overdo this to such an extend that it ruins the picture. This is also something that your picture show that the photographer behind it has a good feeling for it.

You have focused wisely on the parts you would like to stand out to the audience to make them get the first impression of the picture.

What I miss is perhaps some of the small details in the shadowed parts, they are hard to get right but with a combination of the above and some post process in photoshop you will be able to get it absolute right in the future.

Keep up the good work!

that's truly a wonderful shot, I love the depth in hit, and how big you make this flower look, like some kind of big organic building :aww:
and for some reason the thing in the center reminds me on an angel.... =)
