      It was perfection. I was lucky to hit it when the light was reflecting off the pavement outside the window. Thank you. ~amy

      Thank you, Peggy. I’m sure they were all saying, “don’t buy me, don’t buy me” trembling from fear of me doing so. I can kill an orchid within a week. 😦 ~amy

      1. I’m still learning the concept of perfect light, but now I know it exists for real, I got my sort of experience with bad lighting, so I know what you mean.

        Yes, bad lighting is rather obvious. Usually full sun…The lighting on the orchids was bounced from the paved area (maybe a mix of rock & cement?) through the window into a very low light place. Shade tends to be best during the middle of the day, having the sunlight bounce toward your subject. If there is no light bouncing off anything, when you are editing you may begin to notice that your images have a blue/cyan tint to them (absence of direct light) then you either add yellow/magenta to correct. Take this test to see what I mean…find something white, like a flower in the shade & add those colors & watch what happens to the flower…
