Very smooth image. Thanks for the tip and the reference.

Great choice of DOF. And, very effective use of the Orton action (a personal favorite action!)

Exquisite beauty, Anita ...

This is marvelous, Anita. I really love this a lot. The bokeh is very supportive of the main subject and the color contrast and combination is magnificent. You should approach Longwood with these shots and see if you can work a deal to use them in their advertising.

Gorgeous shot! Love the framing and the DOF.

@Betsy Barron: Thanks, Betsy. It would be interesting to know which images you use it on.

Really nice shot there! Although... I think the contrast isn't too good in this one, makes the flower blend into the background?

@Koushiro~光子郎: One reason the flower blends in with the background is the Orton effect, which blurs the image a bit. I posted the same image but with more contrast at link Do you like it better?

Beautiful as always Anita...Lovely colors and effects !

I like the narrow focal plane which emphasizes this beautiful blossom. Nice close up.

Superb shot. What a wonderful composition and such marvelous colors. I don't know how you are able to be so consistently good.
