This time took care of exposure and used a different white balance as an experiment. Smile

Quite happy with the background, very natural dof

Any C&C will be appreciated.

A very pleasing shallow dof capture good detail and natural colours and tones with good B/G separation

Good sharp detail on the flower. It suits the square crop.

The frame you've chosen gives the appearance of a print in a frame on the wall. You've chosen black and white for the frame, neutral colours. You don't want anything to detract from the flower and I wouldn't go for amything more complex than this.

Exposure is good, the trouble you took was worth it. The background is not intrusive, providing sufficient information as to the environment.
It's always a little trickier with cameras with smaller sensors to get the background suitably out of focus, but you've done admirably well here.

While it's good to play with manually setting the white balance, and you'll learn a lot, the one you chose here seems unusual. Having said that, you don't say what the prevailing light was. It doesn't seem to have adversely affected the image, but I'd expect a fluoresent setting to result in a reduction in green saturation, which doesn't appear to be the case here!

So to sum up, a decent job.

Thank you Keith, The lighting condition was plain daylight but was just experimenting with WB options of my camera. Smile
