Exotic Flowers for Monday

Little pink Orchid bush



White Orchids



Orchid Blooms


Wild Orchid looking over the fence




Red Beauty


I'm not good in orchid names - I just love them all.

For me is the orchid the beauty queen of all the flowers.

Susanne... I love the dream-like quality of the flower shots. Are you using a lensbaby, or a different technique? Sean

Hi Sean
thanks for visiting my blog and writing a comment to this post!

I'm thinking about buying a lensbaby soon.I discovered recently Picasa and its effect, they are great and very simple to use. So I'm playing around with that for a while...I like that dreamy effects too.

Susie said...

I love the effect too and was about to ask you how you've got it. I didn't know Picasa has that advanced features, I would have guessed Photoshop or the GIMP... or a lens.

Hi Susie,
