Artist's Description

(Please view large – it makes a difference!) I have many favorite places within the Los Angeles County Arboretum (Arcadia, California, USA), but for me the orchid greenhouse is always a must on any visit. These vibrant orangey orchids made me think of music and love, and so I added hints of music and texture to the image to play up the romantic aspect of the flowers. Textures are from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures (Les Textures 3: Jaipur and Delicato 2). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2.0, 1/640 sec, ISO 100, heavily filtered afternoon sun, handheld)
