Thanks.

I also did one where the whole scene was sharp. But honestly...gut feeling said that this one was better. And a few days' consideration sort of confirmed that. It's beter just having the bulbous Right piece of cauliflower sharp, while having it surrounded in orange tones and emitting yellow tones.

Similarly, shalklow depth of field on the roach works just fine. The Antennae are sharp, while the actual bug is blurry (but still in-focus enough to make out what it is). Nothing's really mysterious here, and the actual subject matter is sort of boring. But the subject matter combined with the shallow depth of field jst sort of gives off an element of "fun" that I think totally works for the picture.

It's silly. It's nonsensical. It's also sort of gross. And that's kind of why I like it. The boost in saturation and the shallow depth of field just sort of adds to that, IMO.
