Melissa! This is such an incredible floral macro. The lighting is full of drama and detail. The placement you chose is spot on. Gorgeous, rich, and deep color make this so dynamic. I love your DOF choice. Really brings the focus into the heart of the composition. Such excellent work. Way to go! Huge congratulations to you :o) Right on!!!
