Welcome and thanks for posting. There is a ton of info available here if you take the time to look around.

I love poppies and this one is a nice example. Shooting flowers can be difficult at this close range because your depth of field is very limited. You need to determine what you want to be in focus. There isn't too much in focus here. You can kind of see where the focus plane might be, but it's still a little blurry (probably from camera shake or just too close to focus). Keep at it and enjoy the hobby.

Welcome to POTN!

As mentioned, it is out of focus, but with learning all the things your camera can do, it will improve! Keep clicking.

Try a shot from directly over the poppy. The radial pattern of the poppy head might provide a good image even with the shallow depth of field. What was it shot with and settings?

thwe pistels seem very sharp to me, but then again, that's just me, and not the op, who obviously enjoy's enough to share it with us. Great work, nice flower, thank you for sharing it! I love flowers by the way :)

They are not sharp, but its all a learning experience!

Oh, you mean crystal? well, maybe not 1000%, however, they are plenty sharp toward the ends, and enough so to focus on the pov?

If one is taking a "macro" of the innards of anything, I have to think they would want them sharp.tack sharp. It"s all is OOF for me.....but if we get to see the settings, we will see what the OP had to work with.

Welcome to POTN...this can be a tough nut to crack here on C&c..but believe me, you will not regret posting here;)

Why would you think blurred and OOF was Ok for this?

There are many sites, and Social sites that will give you that back slap atta girl stuff.this is not one of them :) If you want to truly improve, then keep posting here.

I like detail and texture and as noted this is OOF, but in this case I really like the colors. Not everything has to be in focus but in most cases some of it has to be. Practice will help you find a balance.

Gorgeous colors. To me, the concept works well. I don't have any issues with 'in' or 'out' of focus.
