I love the colors in this image, Lisa. The crop works well as well. I wish that there was a tad more of the little yellow dudes in focus. Otherwise, looks good to me. #1472325

I like it also for the same reasons Lisa. Lots of my flowers had this same limited DOF so will be looking into focus stacking. Check it out. #10209198

this is very nice Lisa, I think you've done a great job. I believe your crop works great. I agree with dale on the focus stacking but can only be done with a tripod. #10211515

I really like the colors on this one. It is hard to get it all in focus, but I think you have done good with this one. #10213160

As has already been said, beautiful colors and I agree with the little yellow things being in more focus. I will have to look up focus stacking, Dale, because I haven,t got a clue what you are talking about. #10213186

Yep I agree with Jeff...if those yellow things were in sharper focus it would have been spot on in my mind. :~) The rich colors are very inviting and so is the light. I've never heard of focus stacking either..... #10213702

Thanks everyone. I've never heard of focus stacking either, I will have to look it up! I took this for a class I was in, and the assignment was either to use 'hyperfocal' or limited depth of field. I'm very fuzzy on hyperfocal anything and will make that my project for next month. #10214306

I love these flowers. They are so interesting with the different elements and colors. I think you did a fantastic job capturing their color. I agree on the focus for the yellow things. :) #10214699

Awe...I'm a sucker for pretty flowers Congrats on the EP...
@Dale...guess I'm really out of the loop for being absent so long...I've no idea what focus stacking is and have never heard the term before either. Do tell!
