Name this Orchid

My Mother-in-law had me shoot this shot of her "award winning" orchid on Thanksgiving day. But, I do not know the name of it, so if anyone knows the name of this orchid, please let me know. The sun was shinning directly on this flower, so I had my daughter grab a clump of moss hanging from the tree to hold it up in front of the flower to difuse the sun and create some nice shadows...

Candle Trail.

Ok, this one was fun to shoot. My Daughter Rachel and I set up a candle on the kitchen counter with a black foam board in the background. Set up the flash off camera and to the right of the candle with some tin foil on the left side to reflect some light on that side. Rachel blew out the candle and I hit the remote shutter release to get this effect. We thought the shot came out pretty cool.
