All three are really nice. There's something about that cactus that sure makes me pause, really like the simplicity of the second one, but the first one is my favorite - love the purple color with the drops.

No.1 is my favorite, how did you get all those drops so symmetrical, beautiful colours, great shot.

Thanks for the comments. I did not do anything special for the drops of water...I must have gotten lucky to have been there soon after the orchids had been misted. Jay

Nice shots. I like the 2nd one in particular. Beautiful composition. One thing I would suggestion on that one is to clone out the leafe on the upper right. It distracts from the rest of the pic.

Thanks...good point about the distracting leaf on the upper right of pic #2. I never noticed it until you pointed it out; now that you have, it sure stands out as quite the distraction!! Jay

Did you use a flash for fill?

Very very nice. Were you using a macro mode on the first shot (I don't even know if that lens has one)? Great detail and color.

Tim, that lens does not have a macro mode. I was at the minimum focusing distance when I captured the image. I cropped the image to size.

Fghouse 2000: I'm fairly certain that I did not use a flash (given the minimum focusing distance). Thanks all for the comments! Jay
