    fabulous capture my friend!
    love that depth and perfect focus

  • Maggie, thank you!!
    I’m pleased the focus worked out as it is all manual and my eyes are not what they used to be:-( These flowers on my balcony gave me a chance to get some shots today despite the rain, rain, rain.
    Greetz, Kasia

    Lovely, nice DOF!

  • Colin, thank you. The Lensbaby creates the DOF as it were – I just have to make sure it isn’t too much, at least for my taste:-)

    i love the painterly look of this photo. the depth of field is amazing.

  • Adrian, thank you. There was low natural light but I thought I’d experiment and didn’t use an aperture disc in the Lensbaby. Had to keep still but loved a few of the results – the DOF that came out is almost like movement. Kasia
