Taken with my D700, Nikon 105 f/2.8 vr micro (vr off to not effect bokeh) Gitzo tripod, SB900, and a cable release.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Cheers, joe

Hi Joe,

Were you aiming to have such a shallow DoF (1cm) or is that just the way it worked out?

Bob.

Thanks for commenting Bob.....
I took a couple dozen shots to achieve this.

It was the desired look that I visioned.

Cheers, Joe

I like it, the middle flower is in focus and I think that's all you need. The bokeh would normally be quite distracting but it gives the shot an interesting look here I think.

Amazing the subject isolation and the background that value it.
