    I was out getting some family shots of my sister's clan and I walked by a shot that caught my eye...

    I think it may have benefited from a shallower DoF. I can't decide whether or not I like it... I did a quick pass through in Gimp and re-cropped it using a 2:1 aspect ratio...

    I thought I'd offer it up here fore some C&C.

    I like this; I think it works with the DoF just fine. I have two minor niggles. One, the tip of the leave upper center which is intruding on the bloom. I think that should have been moved underneath the bloom, and second is the background area at the bottom of the image, just below the flower. That said, it is a nice image. Well done.

    Thanks... I agree with the leaf overlapping the bloom... I didn't notice it until I was at home looking at the photos on my monitor... I wish I had seen it before I took the shot.

    It seems grainy to me. Was that intentional in post processing? Cool shot.

    Yes... It was intentional. Here is the original (resized/smaller)... Just to show...

    though i like the shot, but why did you processed it noisy , intentionally ? I don't see any benefit until unless you want to show old time effect

    I like the look... I think in this photo, it works... for me anyway... :)

    The benefit is art. Everyone has thier own opinion. And I respect yours. :) Thanks for the comments.
