Guelder Rose Berries

By kevan  
I deliberately kept the DOF limited (not hard at 1:1!) focussing on the nearest berry to get the dew sharp and the rest of the berries out of focus.

This was my second visit to this bush (about 10 miles from home) to photograph these. The morning I found the bush, I'd arrived too late to take advantage of the early morning lack of wind. When the shutter speed is 6 seconds (at f11) even the slightest breath can give rise to a blurred shot.

Tripod, mirror lock-up and remote release were used.

Good use of limited depth of field, you've achieved what you wanted. Good colours too.

Good use of the shallow DoF here, but some of the picture looks very noisy which is a bit distracting. Bet the slide is a stunner!

Hi Kevan,
I like it,the limeted depth of field works very well as do the bright and vivid colours.
