Bonus pic for day 1 of 30 days of flowers.

Had my 50mm reversed on my 18-200. Handheld outside in a breeze; DUMB way to do this as focus is so very narrow! Check out the tutorial for more info on the technique.

I need to try the reversed technique sometime. The dof is incredible and so is the color

The center reminds me of a little octopus, all be one with only 5 tentacles...very pretty light and DOF.

With that razor-thin depth of field, I think you picked out the perfect area of focus. Nice. The bokeh areas are very lush and satisfying.

The soft focus works well for this with the dark background showcasing the purples and the curly stamens.
