And so, the end is near... by psychographer

And so, the end is near...

My poor orchid is now very much on its last legs. This is the final flower hanging on for grim death. I need to have a little look on the internet to see how I should care for it and whether I can prune it in any way to help its survival. Ironically my Christmas cactus is in full flower!
don't know why,but it's a fav for me.I love it:D

@michellina Thanks Mihaela. I edited this a lot! xx

@peterdegraaff Peter, I changed the colour and did a lot with layers to make this a more appealing image. It was really very boring before :o) xx

Oh it's making a beautiful shot! I have never got one to reflower but my father-in-law has a huge display year on year from ones that have been given as presents over the years.
November 8th, 2012  
beautiful!!
November 8th, 2012  
Looks a little sad, but it's still a beautiful colour.
November 8th, 2012  
It does look sad but wonderful editing to give texture and depth to the shot. Nice job.
November 8th, 2012  
So gorgeous...even in death. I am also an orchid killer. Nice to meetcha;-).
November 8th, 2012  
It's great getting a good picture out of something that looks ordinary!
November 8th, 2012  
No clue on orchids - killed one myself not too long ago.........
Roses and I'm your go to lady
Sorry it is dying but it gave a lovely shot.

November 8th, 2012  
great DOF and colours, I think you have a green thumb too!
November 8th, 2012  
Lisa this is a stunning shot, I particulary love the lone flower.
November 8th, 2012  
Love the lines here! Beautiful shot and gorgeous tones!
November 8th, 2012  
Yep, definitely the end! Great lighting! If the stem is not dry, don't cut it, sometimes a new stem grows and gives new flowers. Mine always make flowers again, with a resting period of a few weeks-months (it's variable).
November 8th, 2012  
Love this shot especially the colours. 2 tablespoons of water every Thursday is what I give mine and they flower again eventually. Sometimes on new stems sometimes on the old, as long as they have not withered.
November 8th, 2012  
...but it is still so pretty. At least your shot of it is :)
November 8th, 2012  
wonderful composition Lisa... love the colors, the framing... everything just perfection on purple.
November 8th, 2012

My orchid has just lost all of its flowers aswell, will be interested to find out what your going to do with yours! I might give mine a little soak for a few mins as a treat and see about some food :) I like the composition :)
