    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I disagree. Macro shots like this need the blurry background to get the subject to pop out, and is a generally accepted practice, not to mention nearly impossible to capture otherwise.

    Fairly good depth of field, although you are really close to capturing the whole leaf in focus. If you can, I might have brought the dept of focus slightly more toward the camera, as having the front edge soft kind of distracts me.

    Neat pic, and welcome.
