    Wow: beautiful soft colors Steppeland, and I really like the DOF in this scene with the sharp focus on the pink blossom.

  • Thanks a lot, Richard. this really soft work with a narrow DOF is an area where I always feeling a little unsure, but which I’d love to master better… Your feedback means a lot to me!
