Challenge: Foreground Bokeh III (Minimal Editing I*)
Collection: Plants
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Location: Maianbar, Australia
Date: Feb 25, 2014
Aperture: f/1.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250 sec
Date Uploaded: Feb 25, 2014

It was getting quite dark and I thought I'd try and get a shot with the 10 mins I had available. Nothing but this. I wasn't even going to bother to enter but after having a second look I started to like it enough to enter. The more I look the more I like it.

I liked it a lot when I took it but I know this is not going to appeal to anyone unless they spend some time to look. If they do they may give it a 4 instead of a 2 or 3.

I really like the look of this one, the silvery foilage with the purple salvia planted in the middle, it's done well in the rule set. I don't think however this is really bokeh, more shallow DOF.

The lively bokeh makes me feel as though someone has rustled the plant with their hand releasing one of my favorite scents on this planet.

This has color, bokeh, depth, and abstract all in one. Well done.
I forgot detail.
