Dendrobium fimbriatum var oculatum

ifraser25(z11 Brazil)August 23, 2011

This is a top-performing species. I have seen large plants with over 30 active canes and hundreds of flowers. Mine is still a youngster. "Fimbriatum" means frilly and "oculatum" menas with a dark "eye" or center. Easy and reliable.

Again nice photo,but for me to much light.Is this taken outside.
If you have a photo umbrella and stand use it outside to block off the suns rays and set your camera setting to shady and give it a try.

Thank you Charles. You are right about the light being a bit bright here. I think I also overdid the contrast. It really is this color however! All my pics are shot in natural light, though some of the smaller close-ups are done indoors using a time exposure. I will experiment with the umbrella idea. Hand-held close-ups are not easy, however. You can't do them without bright light.

What kind of camera do you have.You might want to think about a tripod.Then even make tabletop ones.
The color is terrific,but to me it all runs together.
Can you duplicate what you did with the Coelogyne.That photo is spot on.
