Hi Bugoy,

I would have used at least f/11 if not even bigger (smaller aperture) f/18 to achieve more depth of field (DOF) if you have sufficient light (or a lighting/flash system). I also think you used too much "green" in your post processing. I do not think the rose has so many green highlights throughout. Like the water droplets ... better lighting would light them up better (somewhat like the large droplet to the left).

Anxious to see future attempts using bigger apertures for macro subjects.

Best wishes,


Calibration Check
