Nice looking flower, maybe just a little soft for me. What F-stop did you use for the shot?

it was at 5.6
im using the kit xt lens which is soft no matter what
but im goin to reshoot at the same spot with maybe f8 because it seems to be my lenses sweet spot!
its mainly the first shot which doesnt seem to have enough depth of field to get the entire flower!
but i will also have the 70-200 f4L soon so sharpness is just around the corner!

Great, xiggy. Sounds promising. Sharpness is not really an issue on the higher levels
