Nice shot! Although I think this isn't as nice as your other shots.... I like the way the water droplets were captured though...

Perfect. Very good management of depth-of-field (f/16) in order to have the rose within the field of focus.

@António Pires: Thanks. The dof is tricky--I want enough dof to have sharpness for the entire flower, but, not so deep that the backgroud becomes distracting. Not sure I achieved right balance in this one.

Ed Heaton from United States
