Best I can manage - shooting blind with TZ - no screen :suicide: - don't even know what the camera settings were - FWIW the actual Orchid is Pink NOT Purple :eek:

Backlit the flower with a cheapo LED lamp.

Damn its hard but yes, debs, goso, GC and definitely Jim but I did go for the simplicity in Domino's with the lovely shadows, composition and great smooth background.

but no one should feel disappointed in that batch. Great effort allround

I think the specific subject helped a lot. As people can concentrate on taking an interesting shot rather than try to think of a subject first then the shot on the more general titles. Good week and I've enjoyed everyshot

Thanks to Jim for the vote and the honorable mentions, and Darren for his comments on my flickr.

My vote, as already mentioned, was a tough one as the standard has been so high this week. Darrens is a lovely lit shot, but it was pipped at the post by gosso's shot. It's the half lit foreground flower that nailed it for me.

But well done all.

Cheers for the vote Goso :)

Really enjoyed the theme this week, as has been said it's much easier when you have a specific subject to concentrate on.

My vote is for Goso this week, liked the shot when I saw it on your Flickr feed earlier in the week :thumbsup:
