Description December 2012 Finalist in Close-Up Competition. This is an example of selective focus, use of shallow depth of field with a vividly colored bunch of purple daisies wherein I attempted to do something that Tony Sweet does which is to shoot through some of the flowers, capture a focal point with adjacent areas out of focus and blurred. I have mixed feeling except for the color. Others folks seem to like the image. Perhaps, it is being different that generates an interest in it. What do you think? I expect you think it should be far more in focus? Nonetheless, the color is neat.

Exif: F Number: 3.2, Exposure Bias Value: -2.00, ExposureTime: 1/25 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 90.00 mm, Model: NIKON D700
