hi, well, actually i had around 4x zoom when i took this shot. done it with an external flash, and with a +10 closeup filter. was experimenting myself, sort of trial and error.. so i can say that i ended up lucky with this shot.
Hi ortega, u're right. I wanted to take a sharp pic of that flower, but realised that the inside of it doesn't have much to see. so, i ended up experimenting to see what effect it'll have if i make it OOF. i have seen some pics that look like this before (abit of water color effect), but dunno if the technique is the same? :dunno:
Anyway, i have thought of cropping the white petals.. but it looked rather boring with just the yellow, so i decided to stick with it. thank u for the suggestion..
