Toying about with my limited artistic moods, and testing my new Nikkor DX 18-135mm ED lens at the same time, I came up with this composition while walking through San Anton Gardens recently.

Using critical focusing and pretty selective depth of field, I gave due prominence to these lovely dainty flowers allowing the clusters in the background to merge softly out of focus ..... the mood I was in coupled with the focal point aptly titles the shot "Blues".

Viewing larger should look better, hope you find to your taste.

Joe
