I'm looking for DOF feedback on this image. Should I have made it larger so the entire flower wasperfectlyin focus?

I think I prefer your choice of sharp stamens with a soft blur of petals. The entirely sharp flower, although pretty, has been done to death. But with your photo the viewer is drawn INTO the flower's center - its very core. This is a perfect shot for a magazine where the layout artists employ copy text on the image as a background.

Very nice.

nice job with this shot, i like the sharpness of the center. and the color is great. i think it could use a framing of some sort but that's probably just me. what equipment were you using for this shot?

Thanks to both of you. This was taken with a RebelXT in RAW and converted with Canon's converter. The lens was a Tamron 70-300 4-5.6LD Macro.

Exif: 300mm and 1/320th at f/10, ISO 100. I was about 3 feet from the flower, handheld.

I traded this lens for a Sigma 70-300 APO DG lens b/c the Tamron had lots of CA in bright light.
