Picture shot in my back yard with a cannon macro lens 100mm. Actually I'm interested in the lens and am at present working with a friends one. Shot with one light source, I've lit the subject from the right hand side whilst I positioned myself on the left.

Converted from raw, adjust slightly the colours and 10% sharpening of the focoused part.

Fitting title, I'm confused, since only small portions of the image are clear. Strawberries, cream, and cake? I'd be interested in seeing a clearer outtake.

Fits the title, all right! What is it?

edit - Oops. Wrong guess on the photographer I guess. :D

I like how the DOF blurs the foreground flower piece (stamen? can't remember the flower parts right now) into a nearly translucent state. This works well as an abstract and the color is fun to look at.

The part I'm not sure of is the connection to the oxymoron, and my brain hurts from trying to put the connection together! :)

Well, at least this got longer than a 2 second look from me anyway. Good luck in the challenge.

it certainly is confusing, I'm not sure what it is. I expect that is the way you want it to look but I cant understand quite where the clearly comes in, good luck anyway

I don't know that I like this as a picture, but the title gives it a very distinct feeling that fits the challenge. I can't explain it, but as art I like it.
