Taken with Canons MPe-65 Macro Lens, MT24ex Twin Flash, 550D and Handheld.

Deliberatley taken at f6.3 as i wanted a very small DOF to give a dreamy setting.

Does it work?

Works well for me, the only criticism I'd make about it is the un-natural looking catchlights in the eyes, can't be helped with that Twin Flash set up though, I know I have one myself, though I rarely use it as I find it makes images look a little flat. Not the case with this though. Good work!

Thanks Ade. I only wish i could post a larger version. The majority of what you see in the eyes is the flower its on, its front legs and the end of the lens, you can even make out the bluetack im using to hold the diffusers on.
