This shot suffers from the compression I use to speed download - but what 'cha gonna do?

Compression for blogs is very always very annoying, Lavender. But we can't tell on this end - really! Splendiferous orchid indeed :)

Hi Lavender,
This red orchid is beautiful! In Singapore, we export 25% of the world's orchids and I have not seen such a pretty red one.

Thanks for your warm welcome to WW. This is my first time.

Greetings from Singapore! ^-^

That is such a lovely color-scheme, it just jumps off the picture.

Hey Lavender,

Please tell me that you bought this and DID NOT grow it. What a beauty! I have never seen a red orchid. I have seen some crazy wackadoo ones in Central America, but this takes the cake. Happy WW. Thanks for popping over.

Compression might take away, but you can actually see the texture of the orchid in this picture. Kinda makes me want to reach out to feel it. Beautiful photo, beautiful flower!!!!
Happy WW!

I wouldn't worry too much about the compression - it's a great shot. The red is very strong and the green is a great contrast. Nice shot :-)

The center of the orchid looks like a baby bird's beak.

I couldn't see any compression fault in the picture.

Jeremy said...

Lavender; Great shot, and remember unless you are hosting the picture on flikr or some other large medium site you will still get poor image quality compared to on your system.

Forget compression issues it is a great shot! happy ww

G'day Lavender, "Borrowed" your fabulous idea of a WW.

Didn’t want to distract with my incoherent mutterings…

Ces said...

Oh Lavender, this is absolutely lovely.
