    The composition and colors are great. The sharpness, however, leaves something to be desired and I think some of the highlights are blown. I think the DOF is a bit TOO shallow ... I would want the petal at the bottom of the main flower to be sharp, not OOF as it is here. This is a great start! Keep shooting!

    Thanks, icassel. That was helpful.

    The highlights were tough to rein in; there was a ray of bright sunlight on the flower, the background was in shade. The background is actually a redwood-colored fence.

    As for DOF, I gotta agree. I was trying out my new 1.8 (at, of course, 1.8 :mrgreen:).

    Perfect opportunity to slap your SB-600 on and set to TTL. I want to see some background.
