This is a clumping type of ginger with large elongated leaf stems that may attain 20 feet. The name describes the inflorescence that forms at the end of a stalk and resembles a torch. This ginger is native to the East Indies. It is not recommended for small confined areas. It is easily found in popular places like Botanical Garden, Zoo & Sentosa Island etc.

Dead center composition, would be nice if it was meant for a science book or similar, but as a picture, this kind of composition is pretty dead...

As for the BG, if you want a clean BG, do consider cloning away the whitish blobs on the bottom left and right...

Nice and sharp. Well exposed too. But pity the composition. Either getting closer or placing it off-center will improve the shot

i agree. but i gotta love the colour and the textures though. maybe if can get closer wif a macro lens wuld be interesting doing a few abstracts wif the texture of the flower. =D
