    Nice flower. The leaves are competing for attention. Try using a white or black background (cloth is good) and see the difference it makes in POP appeal.
    My Father in law has many orchids so great for me if I want to play (and not converse ).

    Yes if you just want the flower. But in some ways the leaves look more natural.

    Otherwise, an excellent photo.

    I had considered removing the leaves but decided to leave them for a more natural look as Geoff commented. In the image posted below I removed the leaves, it looked stark and not natural. Your comments and opinions are appreciated.
