Decided on a crop that will show the beautiful details of this Orchid.

See a wider crop in the workshop.

from http://www.israel-flowers-center.com

There are many Israel flowers species in spite of the fact that 60% of Israel is desert region. In the non-desert region, Israel has many flowers species in compare to many European and Asian countries. The reason for this is based on the fact that Israel varies in weather conditions, topography and ground regions. This fact makes many growth regions and houses for Israel flowers that have different life requirements.

Many Israel flowers are in the Mediterranean flora region. This region is the most known and has clear borders. It includes most of the countries in the Middle East. The climate for this region is divided into 2 equal seasons. One is an easy winter with rains and the other is a hot dry summer. The flora in this region is very reach in compare to its region size. In Israel this region includes the beach lowland from Gaza to Lebanon border, all Gallil mountains, Hashomron and the Yehuda mountains west side.

very nice, I would crop it vertically, dash, Ori

Great picture. Beautifully sharp and perfect BG. I have a slight preference for the workshop version.

Hi Shir

What a lovely little terrestrial orchid species. Although I do tend to agree with Hans since my preference also lies with the version from your workshop. You could have cropped that even a little tighter so one could see a little more detail of the flowers. Seeing the complete inflorescence makes so much more logic to the senses, but I can understand that it remains a matter of taste.

You captured some brilliant details though. The crystal like texture of these flowers is clearly visible. The colours are absolutely magnificent, the exposure was controlled perfectly, and the DOF rendered the BG completely OOF with only a sporadic hint of green aiding in enhancing the beautiful flowers.

Very well done and TFS.

Interesting orchid. Good detail and colors. I would suggest something similar to your workshop, but a more diagonal view in a vertical frame.

Preciosa macro Shir. Muy buenos detalles y colores estupendos. El fondo es el adecuado para destacar la imagen principal.

Shalom Shir... bella imagen con delicados tonos, excelente agudeza y detalles de estas maravillosas flores.
Me encanta el punto de vista y el encuadre elegido, bien descentrado, gracias a un perfecto desenfoque del fondo que brinda junto con una perfecta iluminación una composición muy estética.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Shalom Shir...beautiful image with delicate tones, excellent sharpness and details of these wonderful flowers.
I love the point of view and the elected framing, well uncentered, due to a perfect out of focus of the bottom that offer together with a perfect illumination a very aesthetic composition.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
