A Mother's Day Orchid

Before it was presented to her, I snuck it into my home office, which sometimes serves for a makeshift photography studio, so the plant could pose for me.
As I was pondering how to light it, the idea came to me to have a strong backlight which would give the flowers a translucent glow. Add to that some fill light from the side, and voilà!
I’m happy with how it turned out. What do you think? Leave your comments below. And happy Mother’s Day!
