Not bad, not bad at all. The colors are eye popping. The blur hurts the image just a bit as I'm sure you already know.
Very pleasing image

Wilson- I'm rather partial to blurs and I find this extremely attractive. I must admit it kind of reminds me of one of those rubber ball like playthings, can't remember the name at the moment. Nature has a way of combining colors so beautifully! Composition is perfect!
Wils Would have to echo the sentiments already expressed.

Beautiful, Wilson!! I love the play between the pinks and yellows ... with absolutely NO other colors present!!
Sorry, I'm with the rest on this one - the blur is too distracting because it divides two sharp areas. Nice colors, though.
CR: When Wilson "does a bloom" you have to look closely. And really, the position/cropping is excellent! The colours, and the idea of heavy dissolving of sharpness is outstanding! CL: Although the blur on the "bottom" of the bloom is quite interesting it is distracting at the tops in the foreground! HAND, RE
CHiPs Beautiful lighting and colors, but it appears to be somewhat soft at the focal point. Sondra
Thank you everyone for your kind feedback. I guess the DOF wasn't deep enough so the sharpness was only at selected area. Handheld at f8 just doesn't cut it in macro, I guess. ^_^
The shallow depth of field works for me fine but enjoy the photo much more when viewed larger. Check out my few macro piccy's Added a 6/6
"Yellow & Pink," closer look of a water lilly. A typical Thai water lilly. What works, what doesn't? Feedback is appreciated.
