    I was playing around w/ DOF on flowers and this is what I came up w/. Do you like the shallow DOF or do you find yourself wishing it was deeper?

    I suppose it depends on the depth of the background.
    I'd personally like to see a bit more of the flower in focus.
    Other than my silly personal preference, it looks pretty good.


    My comments are worth exactly what you pay for them!

    I like it too! I woud want to see a deeper DOF to compare. But, with the water drops, it does keep my interest the way it is. I guess I would prefer a little deeper though.

    I think this works just fine, because of the water droplets on the front of the petals. I think more dof will distract from this shot.
    Great composition and thought going on in this shot, you really saw something and went with it.
