Shot this one yesterday in my brother in-law's garden. Settings was F 3.7 - Shutter 1/125 - ISO 100 @ 89mm. Stood about 6 meters back and zoomed in to get the blurred effect. I really battle with this a lot of the time and glad this one worked out OK. Colour was slightly enhanced and I cropped it a bit. Rest as is of the camera

The colours are striking and I like the crop and DOF.

All in all a very nice image very well produced.

Whatever you did worked out really well in this image. The dof is very pleasing. The lily itself stands out beautifully.

Nice use of DOF Leon. If you use Photoshop try duplicating the layer, then use Guassian blur on the top duped one and using a softish "brush" on the eraser tool, erase the blurred top layer away to bring the sharp areas back again, it gives a very realistic effect of DOF.
Nice Smile
