Nicely done! I like the framing and the DoF you got using the Macro lens!
Thanx Mike, I rather like the framing.
That’s a beautiful image! I love the tender and delicate flower. Composition and depth of field are excellent too.
Thank you Martina. 🙂
A little close-up of the flower would’ve resulted in macro .. 🙂
😛 Sure would have eh! Next time I am thinking. Thank you for the comment.
Great shot David! I see what Sasi is saying, and mostly agree. But on the other hand I rather like the framing of the unfocused blossom, it’s the opposite of the “expected” use of framing and makes for an interesting effect.
Thank you Jim, so far I prefer this image of some of the cropped ones I have done. The comments have been interesting thus far, it’s a good thing! 🙂
I see what Sasi said as a good idea, it would make it stronger composition. As you have it now, the focused parts frame the unfocused part. I do like the look of the one flower in focus. You could also crop the focused flower alone and make another nice photo.
I also wanted to add that it can be tricky to focus on the framing the way you did. Your shallow DoF is interesting and creative. It depends on the look you wanted and coming back to look at this one again, I really like it.
I actually like it framed this way, something I normally don’t do! Thank you for the comments Martina, I’ve tried a few other crops but have not found one I like yet. I’ll keep trying and if I get one I like, I’ll make a link. Thank you again for your comments! 🙂
I like this minimalistic shot. I have a minor quibble though (I always have one, don’t I?)…
The tall stalk on the left (as seen in the picture) seems a bit distracting..may be a crop would set the focus right.
Thank you for the input Sasi, I’ve tried a few crops and don’t like how they’ve turned out. I’ll try a few more. 🙂
This is very pretty. Has me wishing spring would hurry up. 🙂
Thank you Heather, it’ll be nice once spring decides to come around. 🙂
