Is that a 'Sweet William' Ruth. If so, then I'm sure it also has a sweet scent.

@rick: I did not know the name, but I think you are right, Sweet William.

Lovely flower.. I feel the crop is bit tight

@Sarito: No crop here. This is just the way I shot it.

Unlike Sarito, I'd like you to get in even closer!

Bruce from Tacoma, United States

I agree - the crop is perfect. My only comment to the great photo is your depth of field may be too limited. It looks a little fuzzy in places (the flower) Personal preference is to have the subject flower clear and the rest of the photo blurred as you did.

28 Jun 2012 6:24pm

@Bruce: I am not good at settings - I put the macro lens on, set it to macro flower and snap. I try to get it all focused when I set it up, but sometimes the edge gets a little fuzzy, like here. Thanks for sharing your suggestions.
