Cymbidium Orchid

The Cymbidium orchid shown below in four variations photographed for transparency on a light box was to feature in its own drama of creative destruction: with the blossoms surgically taken off the stem and photographed against a teal background in a little water in a blue bowl on black velvet. Which variation do you like best?

    Hello,
    I like the last version the best.

    I like all of them, but my favorite is the first or the fourth. Wish I could see those two side by side.

    Hi Harold, probably the last one, but it’s very difficult to choose between this and the first one. Great work, mostly with the petals’ borders.

    Have a nice day,
    Mauro
