Wildflower

I have no idea what this flower is called but I do know they are very easy to miss due to being the size of a fingernail (when open). I'm not perfectly pleased with the mixture of sharpness and softness but I'll let you tell me what you think.

Sweet PP
LOL...@ your reply to Dotun. You know when I started this is what happened to me. But it pushed me so dude no wahala.

Nice work
Awesome stuff, awesome stuff.

Dislike flower shots, but every time I visit your blog, you make me almost love flowers and creepy crawlers grin
Stan: Well thats a good thing then smile Wasn't fond of insects either till I started shooting macro. Look out for my spider and fly (yuk) closeups grin
I have no problem with the softness, in fact the soft foreground seems to lead you into the picture. It is a beautiful picture.
This is simply precious! That wonder! smile For my it is a "Likey"
I think you have a winner with this one. Soft, great color, just lovely.
very nice colors and i love the pic
I like the orange and yellow they really pop out of the screen. Looking at the dof closely cos you mentioned it! I guess the fact that the back half of the flower is more in focus than the front is what you are talking about? I think it depends on who you are trying to please - photographers i.e. super critical or people who like looking at pleasing picturessmile I like it on both levelswink And Bill has a point.

Simply stunning Stan.
for a flower the size you mentioned, this is a wonderful capture

but since you were not too thrilled with the mixture of sharpness and softnes...
could using slower shutter speed and a narrower aperture have made it easier to distribute the sharpness? i'm sure the amount of 'macroing' required for this would still have given you a blurred background
lol.... Nice shot macro man smile
wow! Nice color!!
I think it is an absolute delight. (:o)
