Classic White Phalaenopsis
Molbak's Nursery, Woodinville, WA

I used a somewhat open f6.3 in ambient light trying to capture the petal separation yet create a bit of bokeh in the background. The intended focal target was the lip tendrils on the center bloom.
I can't believe how difficult it was for me to render white on white. It took hours and many iterations. Maybe I need new glasses.
