I've taken lots of photos of the cactus in my yard. But I'd never tried one with this shallow of DOF until this challenge. I like the way it emphasizes the crown of the cactus here.

Taken with a +4 close-up filter. No spot editing; just levels, cropping, resizing, and sharpening.

Very nice work, Rick! I like the clarity of this shot as much as the focus on those spines!
