Love this. I have been working on this technique! The aster on the left is sharp and everything else is blurry. The flower stems help move my eye to the flower. WOW!   Posted: 11/05/2020 08:46:24

Ginny, When you take a photo try varying your aperture and pick the one you like. Thank you.Dan   Posted: 11/22/2020 16:31:05

Nice colors and composition, If you could have increased the dof for the subject flower it might have differentiated the subject even more. I noticed you used f20, so it looks like a focus stack would be the only way if that is even possible with wind etc.   Posted: 11/07/2020 14:49:02

Focus stacking is on my list to learn. Thank you Dan   Posted: 11/22/2020 16:35:17

Hi Dan; I like what you have done. I am a bit distracted by the blur on the left and wonder how it would look cropped. Very nice colors.   Posted: 11/17/2020 23:19:38

Donna, The blurring of the subject on the left is intentional. You read left to right and you look at a photograph the same way. I wanted you to look and not stop on the first flower and move on to the second flower which is a little more in focus, then you look further to the right to the flower that is in focus and stop there. Thank you Dan   Posted: 11/22/2020 16:45:51

I agree with Donna, I find the blur and the white on the left distracting. Overall, very nice photo!   Posted: 11/21/2020 20:11:13

I lke the movement from left to right. I tend to do the same thing.   Posted: 11/24/2020 21:04:51
