bubble bath

By jadus      
last october i looked out of the window to see all flora and fauna swimming in droplets of water. This shows a hypericum ( i think?!) laden with droplets. The exposure was 1/250 at f4. I can see pros and cons of how this image works. Would it have been better with the dof closer to so that the droplets closest to the lens become sharp or does it work as it is?

What do others think?

thank you

With these types of shots I would use F8 and take several different focussed shots and then build the image or rather stack the layers so that th ewhole flower is sharp throughout otherwise the eye is drawn straight away to the leaf in the foreground which sadly is out of focus. If you go to Stacking you will learn how to do this and its great fun as well.
Hope this helps.

I've yet to learn to do that on photoshop - but if it improves the image............... thank you for your feedback.
