Even though the colors are beautiful, this one isnt doing much for me Selvin. The edges blend too much into the background and it's almost hard to even determine it's a flower.

Use to import and grow Orchids back in the mid 70's, they were always pretty to look have around the house.

I must say I like your previous entry much more than this one. In this case, the edit makes the flower look pale and fading into the ether. It might look better printed than it does here.
