Three pics in a row of these flowers - yipes! Hope I am forgiven for doing that lol

The DOF is perfect as it draws you into the center of the flower and allows you to watch the rest of the flower fade away. I cannot get the whole center of the flower in focus (and keep the blur) unless I do some masking, which I did not feel like doing :)

I wouldn't change a thing and would not hesistate to submit this again as is :)

Nice use of light to capture the detail in this, leaving a bouch of green in the BG is a perfect choice.

Nice colours and composition. For me the DOF is just a touch too shallow, it would have been nice if the whole centre part was in focus.

I love the vibrant earthiness of these colors!! Excellent DOF, although I would probably have tried to increase it moving back ever so slightly. So far my favorite in the bunch. Absolutely stunning. 9
