Different colored carnations were used as a prop in the church service today and we were encouraged to take some home. I have been in a little bit of a photographic lull recently and the flowers were a nice encouragement. I shot close to 100 different compositions but I liked this the best. I focused on the edge of the closest petal and use another flower as background. Shooting with my macro lens in close rendered all but the focused edge as a blur. Probably not to everyone's taste but I like to shoot flowers this way occasionally so that color and general form make the picture. Nikon D300 with Nikkor 85mm macro @ f8, 0.4 s, ISO 400. And yes my website has a new look...something I wanted to start the New Year with. Next I need to update the home page with more recent photos.
