Challenge: Flora III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
Location: My bedroom
Date: Mar 31, 2009
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 30 seconds
Galleries: Nature, Floral
Date Uploaded: Mar 31, 2009

This is how the editing should have been done for this entry.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/39184/120/780537.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/39184/120/780537.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I rushed the editing in the original a little. Also, after several recent entries that received comments saying that they lacked contrast, I attempted to please DPC voters and really make this pop with vivid colors. I think that this was a mistake and I surely would have scored even better with the revised editing.

I can see the efforts here in getting the exposure right on all the four Orchids. I am not able to appreciate the border though. Great result.

Love the lighting, it looks almost as if you have used four lights with snoots. Great work 9

I like the sense of them glowing in the dark. I think that red border really takes away from the beauty of the orchids.
