Cool! I like what you were going for but for me I would have liked it a lot more if you had cut off almost half of the OOF flower to give more emphasis to the one in focus. Still like it!

Yes!! That's so much better but I'm not 100% sure the wonderfully in focus part is in the right place now, sorry.

Sorry :sad:

It's just me. Maybe others will think the original was fine! :)

I definitely prefer the second version. (The final one, I never saw the other)

Your efforts proved fruitful. I too am liking the final version much better than either of the other two. I think the trick is to kind of use the out of focus bits to frame the subject. Maybe someone else has a better idea but that's my feeling anyway. :thumbup:
