Like your presentation, but not sure were the focus point on the rose is even looking large. You may have a bit of camera shake or used the wrong aperture but there again it may be just my eyes lol

Lovely presentation. This kind of shot is so much better with a macro lens, and as you like flowers so much (and shoot them so well), this should be on your list of accessories to buy ASAP!

Soft focus is fine but I find reds a pest to get right and so de saturate to something less intense. Head on is always worth trying but better when tonal range is broader

If you wanted a beautiful but soft image you got it, well done.
