Excellent dof, Glynnis. Carol

Hello Glynnis you need a larger aperture to the one you have here such as f5.6 to get a smaller depth of field to get the effect you are after. hope this helps

but this worked at f18 if she had used f5.6 some of the front flower would not have been sharp, She achieved what she wanted
