Rob, I've submitted another orchid image which may appear here in a few days in which I exposed for both the orchid and the background since the background (IMO) added to interest of the image. Such was not the case in this image.

Lovely! Great colors and I love the black background too
Jim from Nebraska about 8years ago said:
Rob, it's primarily a dynamic range issue. When the brightness of the principal subject matter (in the foreground) is much greater than the background and you've exposed with spot metering for the foreground, the background will appear darker than our eyes see it. Our eyes don't see that contrast because they're constantly refocussing and our brains reassessing the image. You can sometimes further darken the background in post processing by reducing the shadow resolving slider.
