Edits to Orchids

I discovered that Photoshop doesn’t work well in my new computer with Windows 11. It keeps hanging. Adobe is working on it. While testing it out I created these edits.

Orchids and Other

A mix of plants that I photographed while visiting the NY Botanical Gardens.

Yellow Orchids

Yellow to greenish orchids work well on gray or a dark background.

White Orchids

White and pale cream colored orchids. One hallway in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is all white orchids.

Pink Orchids

There is a lovely variety of patterns and shades of pink in the orchid show. I like to tone down bright green. This allows the colors in the flowers to take center stage.

Slipper Orchids

We went to see the orchid show at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx on February 26, 2022. Here is the first set of 5 posts. I was able to modify the backgrounds in Lightroom by using the the new select subject masking which allowed me to change the colors and blur to suit my taste.
