Here are some examples of some of my orchid flowers I have scanned.  Most of these orchids are not prize winning orchids, but as you can see, the scans are generally very good.  Have a look at how I produced these images.

Not the best scan ever, but is an example of the problems you can experience when scanning dark flowers.   (One of my earlier scans.)

Not too bad a scan showing multiple flowers, but should have been scanned at a much higher DPI to show more detail.  (One of my earlier scans.)

Phrag. Calurum - Click to Enlarge Phrag. Calurum

An extremely large image, but shows extreme detail of the flower and demonstrates just how much detail is possible.  Well worth the wait to display this image.

Sngl. longifolia - Click to Enlarge Sngl. longifolia

Not a bad scan of a very pretty and tiny flower.  Pity I didn't scan at a higher DPI to give a larger more detailed image.

Some graininess starting in the dark parts of the flower caused when lightening this scan, but still quite a good scan showing a lot of detail.  Not the best flower ever, but quite a good scan.

Paph. Memoria Bill Farquharson - Click to Enlarge Paph. Memoria Bill Farquharson

Not a bad scan showing a lot of detail, but starting to show a fair but of graininess due to lightening the image.
