IMHO, I think the lighting is not good enough. Was it hazy when u try to shoot this?

It is well focused on the flower. The bokeh is there but can still see lots of leave and branches behind. Would be better if the bg is more even.

Juz my comments.

i would prefer greater contrast and colour saturation in the photo, to really bring out the purple colour of the flowers, while keeping the background dark and unobtrusive. hope you don't mind my reworking of your pic.

e.g.

imho - In My Humble Opinion

Bokeh - simply put, means the blur-ness of the background.. :)

anyway, i would suggest going in closer to isolate the purple flowers..

It's good to be able to edit with photoshop (ps) but in my view, any picture should be taken the best it can be, ie. make every shot count.

The next time you put the viewfinder to your eye, move around your subject and look at the whole picture - the subject and the surroundings. Look for a position that will give the 'best' picture (at least to you lah). Try various setting, use different apertures and shutter speeds on the same subject and see the results. Experiment! After all, now its all digital. Free to a certain extent, right. Not so 'xim tiah' even if anyhow take.

Take some more pics and post for comments.

all the best
