I think that I would like to have seen the center section in focus, keeping the same perspective, with the petals being OOF...I think. :lol:

Very nice. I like the angle and all of the different colors.

I actually like it like this, it is different. We are so used to seeing the flowers where the center is the focus point, but that's just my opinion.

I'm curious about your reason for only getting the petal tips in focus.

Agree with this. Interesting perspecitve. So many flower macros with the centre in focus. This angle adds a little more creativity making it, for me atleast, a little more interesting.

I just thought I would try something out of ordinary, Do you like it or is it too different?

Thanks

I like the choice of focus. It almost makes it an abstract. I see more the vibrancy and contrast between the orange and green. I don't immediately think "flower" which I think is a good thing.

Anyone think it needs to some pp? I have not really thought it needed anything because the colors are already so vibrant.

I love this shot!! I actually think it looks really cool with only having the edges of some of the petals in focus.. good job!!

Love the colors, but IMO could use a different crop and some cleanup better isolation - cool shot and definetly different but nice idea on focusing...

Very Nice!
