    the specular glare at the right (bottom of the flower cup?) is wierd/scary
    but if you ignore it and look at the stamens instead, that glare kind of indirectly makes a really cool starburst effect
    besides that specular stuff, i really like the lighting/shadows on the "bulb"(?) of the flower
    !flower parts you never knew existed!

    The thing i would like your opinions on is just how much depth of field is ideal in this kind of shot?

    If i remember correctly i only had about F8. But using a smaller aperture was giving me real problems with shutter speed because a breeze was blow the flow around a fair bit.
