You made the most of this opportunity Colleen using the limited depth of field to get just the one flower sharp. The background and the other flowers make a great backdrop.

Good choice to concentrate on the one flower, using the others as support actors, Colleen. Placing within the frame is excellent and balanced. Shows you know what you are doing with a camera in your hands.Smile
