Outstanding colors in these flowers. Very minor tweak in post to liven it up a little.

Hi DW58,

Maybe you could have closed the aperture a bit, unless it's your choice. However, it is a beautiful blaze of colours.

Ciao Mario

Thanks for the comment Mario. There was plenty of light to stop down the aperture quite a bit but shallow DOF is what I was looking for.

I take it this was your personal choice? Not determined by the circumstances of the shooting. Well done

Beautiful image Dave! It has fantastic colors and a perfect choice for DOF in my opinion.

Thanks Todd. Colors almost on the gaudy side of the spectrum but I like it.

Very neat effect - like a bunch of sentinels guarding some secret, mysterious centre! A peek into another world!
