The softness really brings out the best of the flower! Really well taken!

Super work. I like these where you have a very small DOF and the rest is just color. Very nice.

Soft, dreamy, just a hint and the rest is mystery.

I learn so much about the textures of flower petals from you! Here again, it is your choice of focus that nicely directs to the eye to that end.

Nice a soft. Did the camera give this effect or did you accomplish this through post processing?

@Raffi: Raffi: The effect was achieved by using a wide open aperture of f 2.8, which, on a 100mm macro lens has a very narrow depth of field. I focused on the edge of the flower, causing that part to be sharp and the rest to be blurred.
This one makes my heart sing :) It has such a "dreamy" quality to it!
Great work Anita!!

This is how a like flowerpictures ... shallow dof and great colors! It's like an abstract painting, very beautiful.

Wonderful use of DoF, Anita

amazing DOF - that's a sweet 2.8 you have there!

@Betsy Barron: Thanks. I'm very happy with the Minolta 100mm 2.8 macro lens I bought in the spring.; I almost never take it off my camera.
