Aperture: 1.8

I'm not sure what to think of this shot. On one hand, I wanted to shoot at f/11 or higher, to improve the definition of the plant life...on the other hand, the challenge is called 'soft focus'. I hope this isn't too soft.

I'd like something above a 6; if that happens, then I'm happy


It actually is in focus, but I shot at a low aperture (1.8) to allow for some IR diffusion to create the soft focus effect. But I guess that's not what people were looking for.
