"Orchid" is a nice flower piece in the Square Crop challenge. I have to say wow three challenge so far, you are really doing good. Also placing in the upper fifty is always good.

The piece is a nice bright image among several bland images we have to vote through. I really love the colors of the orchid. I think maybe the placement of the flower could be just a little better. With a square crop it is really nice to have a full frame or with a delicate subject like this have it centered or placed on one of the lines that would fall in accordance with the law of thirds. I like the focus on the main flower but there is something that is taken away from the other flowers, Since you did include them I would make sure they look nice. The flower on the lower left side just looks so fake from this perspective. I really like how all the fade into black at the stems. Overall this is a nice flower shot. Keep up the good work you are defiantly on your way.

I love orchids...wonder if this would be more effective with a single instead of the three?

Very pretty, and great clarity and colors. The composition could be stronger. Maybe by tilting a little and moving the main flower towards the upper corner. It feels like the main flower is too centered and the surrounding flowers are chopped off.

wow! st8unning colours and great against the black background...the flower on the right is a little distracting and could have been better out of focus a bit as it's vying for attention
