    Hi guys, I was doing a little exercise practicing with close up, DoF, and trying to maintain a sharp focus. I try to stay away from flower pictures, but the contrast in this daisy was quite brilliant, and the ambient light made me want to attempt it. I think I failed in maintaining a sharp focus around the edges of the frame...any suggestions and/or comments?

    Settings: Camera - Sony Mavica CD 500; ISO 100; Shutter 1/8 sec; Focal Lenght 7mm; F/2.2; Metering - Center weighted average; No flash, ambient evening light. Barely bumped up the contrast in PS but little else.

    Well, it looks like absolute perfection to ME.

    I can see that the edges are sharp and clear near the bottom but less so near the top. My guess is that your camera was tilted slightly, which made it focus on the closest petals... but I don't see too much harm in that. I's a beautiful picture. I need a lot of practice on flowers... mine are nothing compared to yours. :)

    Nice. It appears too centered. Lighting is good. Color saturation is good.
