Award Shortlist

I was searching my garden for inspiration and saw this Clematis plant. This is a cropped portion of the original and edited in Photoshop CS2 to give a soft focus edging. I like the pollen scattered all over the stamens and is original flower dust.
I had to tripod mount the camera to avoid obvious camera shake at this magnification.
Any critical views welcome please.

Seems to me you did everything right, Mike, and the soft focus works a treat.
