Tiger Lily

By id_wright
So... my first ever attempt at an upload.

Found this in the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and thought the other flowers and foliage would make an interesting background.
Quite shady, so had to use a large aperture hence the poor depth of field (was lacking a tripod so couldn't go for long exposure).
Scanned from print, which introduced a lot of noise, then levels altered and dust spots removed in CS2.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated - am very much still learning.

lovely colours and the background is really complementary. If I was going to try and be critical it might be worth trying to clone out the purple plant in the top left hand corner.

yeah, i wondered about that - i did have a go but am still getting to grips with the clone tool so it looked a bit fake - left it in out of necessity!

That is not a poor dof, it's an artistic dof. Nicely captured.
