    I don't do much in the way of macro photography, so would appreciate any comments on this image. I purposefully went for a really narrow DoF and focused on the outermost water droplets, and am generally happy with the blur across the petals, but am not sure about the stamen being out of focus too.

    Thanks.

    I think I like it the way it is. If you wanted to get the stamen in focus as well as the water drops, and keep your narrow DOF, you'd need a bit of a different angle to get them the same distance away from the lens..and even then it may not all be in focus, maybe if you could at least get the tip of it in focus?
