I love orchids but I cannot grow the for the life of me. But I understand lots of people cannot grow them so I do not feel to bad. They are just such a beautiful plant. I purchased this one for a friend's birthday. I thought it was a good photo op for my 365 picture. This is my first RAW photo edit job, not to bad for the first time. Also what is getting even better is I like using all my camera's settings and understanding how they work more and more each time. I rarely use my Auto setting. I use it for when I am in a rush.
