Thanks for the explanation - the noise reduction is probably what bothered me on #4 (couldn't figure it out because the DOF looked fine). I usually add additionalUSM (or smart sharpen)to photos that I've run through Neat Image - I find it helps often (but not always). The other thing I've used on occasion is to sharpen, and then if there's an OOF background that looks too grainy, I'll use one of the blur filters to deal with it, rather than use a noise reduction program. It all depends on the shot - no hard rules (wish there were).
That's the fun of doing the post processing is there are no rules just a matter of taste. Again thank you for the comments and helpful advice. Oh yeah I meant to say that getting the whole flower in the frame was almost impossible as there was a gusting 25mph wind blowing at the time. LOL

LOL! Been there, done that. In that case, only cutting off a bit of petal is an accomplishment!
