|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Tried to keep everything out of focus exept one little detail. The wind made the shadow and sun areas change all the time so I had wait patiently until the focus object was finally hit by the sun.|
Just enough sharpness on the stamens to keep the image viewable. But I do like the patterns of the pedals which adds great color. Nice composition Mr. Macro
I fully agree with you about the charm of sunlight falling on the stamens keeping the rest in shadow but to me, it appears as if one of the petals (blurred in the FG) also gets a share in the sunlight which thereby distracts viewer's observation from your idea behind this shot. I hope you understand what I mean.
Just an opinion so kindly don't mind.
Other than that, this post is a special one as most of your pictures are where you keep photographic standards well to your skills.
Thanks for sharing.
