This page is dedicated to the beauty of Orchids. To help showcase this plant, the Missouri Botanical Gardens (a.k.a. Shaw Garden) was the source of orchids from which all the images on this page came. This is an intimate, close-up look of many different varieties. There is an amazing spectrum of shapes, patterns, colors, textures and sizes represented within this collection. An old Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f1.4 does most the heavy lifting duties in this spread. A Raynox 150 diopter is attached to the end of the lens on the Macro-like results. The diopter shortens the minimum focus distance on the lens, in order to get closer to the shot. The resolution is very high, so they will print up to 40" x 60" and not lose much quality. These offerings are compressed and intended for web viewing only. The full-sized image will be the printed for you and the watermarks will be removed. Just click on the "Buy Print" button beneath your image of choosing and you will be directed to an options page for some decision making (size, finish, crop, etc.). Paypal is used for check-out. For purchases over $99, Paypal offers no interest if paid in full in 6 months.
