I have to honestly say that this was more a narrow, selective focus than a soft focus image and thus did not really meet the topic of the challenge. Thank you to those who gave me a nice score anyways.

Shallow DOF and soft focus are not getting along here, sorry.

I see depth of focus over soft focus in this. It would probably work better for softness to have those petals sticking out to the side be blurred as well, but obviously that's hard given our choices in Basic editing.
