VERY nicely done Iggy. Love that smmmmooooth bokeh, and the wonderfully short dof.

I quite like the comp and colour here - not sure i'm seeing sharp focus anywhere in the shot though.
What was your shutterspeed here?

Thanks, HBG and Marko.

This was shot at 1/160 of a second, ISO 400, with my 50mm f1.8 set at f8 reversed and handheld since I still haven't gotten around to getting a reversing ring for that lens. I gotta remember to order one off off of eBay. Got one for my 18-55mm kit for around $3.
