I really enjoy doing HDR imaging with these beautiful orchids as my subject. This particular plant shows only one bloom of many more to come. I posted another approach to this orchid earlier showing how going to extremes can produce some nice results.

This time, I chose to start with the black and white version to show the elegant lines and texture. The monochrome conversion was done with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 where I added a little more of a high key presentation with very slight, dark vignetting to emphasize the actual bloom.
