I used the cotton gauze found in asprin bottles and stretched it over my camera lens before taking my photos. I experimented with more or less gauze until I found the desired effect I was looking for in a soft focus photo.

Nice. I once took an image through the holes of a saltine cracker. Its amazing the results you can get from such experiments. This image is lovely...abstract and sensual.

I'd tone down that one bright spot on the back of the top petal, but Ilike the composition, colors, and backlighting.

Nice soft focus but a little "busy" to me.
