A Rose taken with shallow dof to soften the image and give it a dreamy look, I think it's worked?

Comments and crits welcomed....Steve

Thanks for looking if you've got this far...Grin

Nice shot. Love the water droplets, they look like pearls on the edge of the petals.

It is a nice shot Steve, but you need to let us know what aperture you used for this if you intention was to get a dreamy look.


For me, the dff is too deep, and theres too much of it sharp (normally a good thing!)


I would also make the centre of the rose appears on a third for a better composition.


Ive loaded 2 mods, first cropped, sharpened and added a little contrast, secind one I emulated a very shallow dof effect


Hope this is helpful



Regards


Willie

Willie...re the info I assumed it would be in the exif data but it isn't and I have not disabled it, maybe an upgrade glitch still?
It was f2.8 - 1/6 second - ISO 100 ...love the first mod think thats about perfect for what I envisaged V2 is way too soft for my taste...but thanks for your time V1 is terrific.

Fudgy, thanks for your comments and I am glad you like it as much as I do, thanks to you too Chris.

Nice shot. Drops of water give the flower more tenderness and grace.
