I used the bottom half of a box of valentine candy which I punched holes into and then pushed the flower stems through to keep the roses in this heart shape.Window light only.

I review the PHOTO OF THE DAY newsletter and regularly view it for both enjoyment and a learning experience. I have noticed lately that the winning photogs often do not state any camera/lens settings and details, but simply a title for the shot. I have always carefully examined these winning entries for enlightenment and further practical education. I have learned a lot in the past with a quick review each morning. Without the setting information, the exercise seems reduced to a "beauty" contest. Comments? Thank you. (BTW Elizabeth, great creativity. Excellent Bokeh!)

Wonderful work Elizabeth! The judges picked the right image for Valentine's Day, for sure.

Is it OK to ask what you used to get that terrific blur for the background?
