The Orchid


The Orchid, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

Went to Longwood Gardens this past weekend, which, for those of you that don't know, are beautiful gardens and a conservatory located near Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. The gardens were beautiful, but the conservatory was even more amazing. Some of the flowers and plants in there were stunning.

In the conservatory, there is an "orchid room" with nothing but different types of orchids. Some of the most beautiful orchids I've seen. I took a bunch of pictures of course. I'm not sure what type of orchid this is, but I thought it was neato.

Obviously, I added a lot of texturing to this photo, and I'm happy with the way it came out. As a point of reference, here's what the shot looked like directly out of the camera, without any postprocessing on my part:

That is interesting to see the original shot. If I took it, it would have stayed like the original. Your processed shot is so much better.
