  #182 Contre Jour / Backlighting
Entry 9 of 23
   
 
Orchid       ©2017 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX85       9th place, 87 points
1/1000s, f5.3, ISO 400, 167mm, Aperture Priority, ?, ?
 
Post-Processing: Softened the petals by decreasing clarity to give a more glowing feeling.       Extra Info: Positioned orchid against a relatively dark background some distance away while also being backlit by the late afternoon sun directly behind.

    I loved it and thought it would have placed higher. Nonetheless it is a beautiful image. Congrats

    Why didn't I think of this? My wife is an avid orchid grower and such specimens abound in our home. Maybe next time. Great job.

    Beautifully done. The detail and colour are excellent against the dark background.

    Well succeeded orchid picture. I have tried it too. I suppose you have darkened the background selectively. In my favorites.

    Nice backlighting - composition might be better without the right and bottom white petals.

    The lighting does an excellent job of illustrating the softness of the petals.
