Hi Folks

Shot at shahbaz park here I put the FG flower in focus and let the BG in shallow depth as few of friends like Paras wanted this POV for my previous posting of this category flower but I already shot one like he suggested.

Here the wrapped flower looks young and beautiful that's why I name it as the "Wrapped Beauty"

Thank you for visiting and useful feedback.
Best Regards

Hello Mushtaq,
Extraordinary...well composed image with off centre position. I liked bokeh effect at BG

Mushtaq ,

What a pretty note, yes, I also think that "Wrapped Beauty" is a very good choice of title.
Wonderful photo like a delicate painting.
I enjoy the bokeh and the perfect colors too.
Fantastic sharpness on the flower in very good pov, Paras always gives good advice.
It is superb! Handsome work.
My best regards

Olá Mushtaq
Really well done. Excellent focus and beautiful and good bg.
Um abraço

No doubt, a lovely capture as you usually delivers on TL but unlike one of your last posts (with title: Among the crowd) this picture doesn't have that strong appeal in terms of the lush green BG you achieved in there, Mushtaq!

If you have gone for a bit higher POV in this case so that you could get green BG as a whole, or by moving few steps to your right side, might have served the purpose. Just a humble opinion, kindly don't take it personally.

Other than that, you have maintained a great focus on this "wrapped beauty" and the sharpness is amazing in this case. The other buds ready to unveil their long lasting beauty are well caught in here. The colors are natural too.

Best greetings,

Hi Mushtaq,
Splendid work depicting shallow DOF! A perfectly focused flower in the FG with a nice blurred BG always complimenting the subject!
Very soft and tender contrast of these two pastel colors.
Very neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

nice work with a lovely dof to accompany the details of the flower in the front of the image it is indeed a wraped beutey
tfs regards bryan

Superb Bokeh here, Excellent sharpness and processing! This is just PURE...Nice soft tones, wonderful colors, perfect comp!
I'm adding you to my Incredible Bokeh Theme!

Great use of shallow dof to bring out your subject. I like the framing and wonderful soft colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Mushtaq...the shallow depth of field makes this shot very original and artistic...very well done.


This is so pretty Mushtaq. Fantastic color and dof with the beautiful blurred bg. Mystical mood. Well done. TFS,Lori

Salaam Mushtaq,

Yes, now it is in unique position as per remarks of Paras now it is standing in quite sharp position and a nice bokeh, the colours are cool and soft that is well composed, TFS.
