Doesn't work for me :( I prefer focus in front and oof at rear which gives a sense of depth.

I think I see what you are trying to do. Not sure if it's working (for me). Perhaps cropping the first third of the left side of your photo might make the out of focus foreground less distracting? Something like an 10x8 ratio.

I find that out of focus objects in the foreground are best when bordering a prominent and focused subject in the center or background.

I can see what you're trying to do, and it's a neat idea. But personally, I prefer my flowers up close. But that's just me.

Your exposure and focus do look really good, though!

Looking for tips, comments, critique, and in general help! :D
