I absolutely adore orchids. They are both my favorite flower to look at, and the hardest for me to keep. Any photos of orchids are either my mother's, or fake, or already dead (because I've killed them, oops!). These photos were fun to take, but I'm not sure if my simplistic editing is quite up to scratch for such close-up shots. I hate airbrushing or heavily retouching skin, so all I've done is pulled out a few blemishes and brightened under the eyes with the healing brush, and then dodged/burned the eyes a bit. Let me know if you think the natural look is nice, or if you think I could do a bit more with the retouching. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Let me know what you think!
