@Koushiro~光子郎: Thanks. Your comment reminded me that I wanted to title this image "Grasses Ballet," which I added as a second title.
Beautiful soft picture

Such beautiful graceful lines.

Is this softness post process or is it because of the macro? I am curious.

@Shuva Brata Deb: I did not add softness in post processing. My macro lens is quite sharp and the f stop I used, f8, should produce a sharp image. I think the image is soft because of faulty focusing! I notice that the front part of the front grass is in focus. The curly parts are further away, as is the second grass. I think they fell beyond the focus range. Also, I was shooting almost into the sun, which made focusing difficult and may also soften the image. So, this image is a lucky accident. In fact, I almost didn't post it because of the softness.
Great use of DOF and i like the sub title. I hope you had a nice day at Longwood Garden's conservatory?

Quite a "poetic" image if that's possible. I like the artistic feel of the image and the mild
processing to get this image. Very well done.
