    •  Thanks Joanne, you inspired me to go look up (3+ / 0-)

      these photos from 2009 and do something with them. I love your orchid theme and I see you never have to worry about the background at Longwood Gardens. What a wonderful place.

        the orchid room has backgrounds that are really not very nice.  

        It's hard to explain.  The orchid extravaganza exhibit is all over -- in the entrance building and in the conservatory.  So the big exhibit areas all have orchids.  But there is also an orchid room that is there all year long.  And you can get great photos there. But the walls are concrete and the orchids are in plain black pots, hung on the walls.  There are a couple of fancier exhibit areas in the orchid room but most of them are against a very drab background with some greens.  

        So there are a number of photos that I have that really would benefit from cutting out the specimens and placing them on a different background.
