Just a bit disappointed when I saw that my Mokara blooms were of the same color as the old one. I was expecting a touch of yellow or purple perhaps? Anyway, I love these blooms because they last for about a month bringing a lovely color to my small garden.
A real burst of colour makes the shot vibrant. If you look carefully, you can see that the sharpest focus is on the dark stems in the centre. You could have tried another shot, with the camera close to the flower head on the far left. That would have sharpened one bloom, and blurred the rest. You also could try an accessory flash, as a burst of light sometimes lifts everything. Nice shot though, lovely colours. Regards from England, Pete.
I took lots of shots of these blooms posted in my main blog. I was trying to fit everything into the frame because I seldom see Mokara blooms sprouting flowers this much. Thanks for all your comments Pete, I really appreciate them.

What it is that makes you capture that one particular scene, embedding it in your memory? What it is that makes you admire those lovely blooms and flowers all around? For some, it might just be a small shoot of flower on the wayside but for the photographer’s eye, it is a beautiful creation of colors . And freezing those moments in a photograph, clicking the shutter in a blink are moments worth remembering. Color me green, color me orange, it would not matter, what is important is capturing the beauty of something in a photograph.
