  1. Very nice! I like when you post multiple photos of one subject. We have a dogwood tree at our house.

  2. These are great. My only critique is more of a question. Why does it appear that the focus "depth" is so narrow? I would expect that flowers being so close to each other, that they would all be more in focus. In the first picture, it seems like the center of the flowers are in focus, but the pedals are not. Any idea?

    1. Thanks! :) The focus can be adjusted by changing the aperture to let in more or less light and it changes the "depth" of the focus to just the foreground or things in the foreground and background. In the first photo the focal point was very precise and the breeze blew the the flower so that the petals were slightly out of focus. I was trying to use depth of field to blur what was in the backround and call more attention to the focal point of the picture.

  3. I'm with Stephen~I like multiples of the same subject sometimes. Also, interesting observation from D.
    Lovely overall, and the lighting makes these extra white.
