detailsI've been away a while! This is just some playing with my latest camera, a Sony R100 Mk IV and a bougainvillea bloom in the front yard. This has had some rotation and a slight crop. 1/1600 f/1.8 ISO 250 +1.75 Exposure comp in LR


(I've paid for a year of membership but somehow still limited to 150k! Help!)

I like the colour but focus seems off

#1 Ray Griffiths( ): I did intent for the focus to be very shallow, but there is a section of the bud near the center of the frame that comes in front of the focus point. Would you suggest a different placement of focus of simply prefer more DoF?

#2 Stuart Holmes:
I reckon more depth to bring all three flowers into focus against the backdrop of colour.

#3 Ray Griffiths( ): I think you are right. I'll have to play around with this camera a bit more!

Shallow focus is a great tool but too shallow here.
