Awesome flower! Well getting soaked and the blood sucked out of you is the sign of a true photographer...that you'll do anything for "the shot". :)

She's a beauty Tom and the light on her is super, as are the raindrops.
Beautiful image. ~ I hope you are dry and not too itchy -

Tough conditions for you but you got the shot and that's the main thing. Really nice exposure under difficult lighting. Vote

A gorgeous wild orchid Tom. Excellent job! :-)
Michael Weinberg12-Jun-2009 04:23
Strong strong image. Like a graceful ballet dancer on tip toes gently presenting itself to nature's audience. The stage lighting is spot on and the drops of moisture and smooth moody bokeh create a classic scene. Congrats for this very fine work which surely belongs in a fine art gallery. Michael.
