Probably the most rythmic shot I think I've taken ever. Extremely shallow DoF (2.8 on a macro lens) in tight with some of the cacti fronds inside the lens shade. Very minor colour shift by adjusting the white balance, otherwise untouched.

Stupendous. I shoot a lot of stuff in a similar fashion and think you've got a great shot here. #2097284
