I recently picked up a Composer and have just processed my first shot. This is one of my wife's orchids and was shot in my living room. I used Lightroom and Photoshop in pp. I am open for any and all critiques. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments Rich, Steve and David. I was really just messing around experimenting. I took about a dozen shots and this one came out the best. The lighting was from the window that the orchid sits by along with a little bounced fill flash. The background was the shades on the window. The background was a little too bright so I toned it down in Lightroom and added a vignette. Fixed a little hot spot on one of the petals in Photoshop.
Looking forward to more opportunities to play with this lens!
