One of the first shots with my new Bigma. Check the EXIFs. I would appreciate comments on both technical merit and composition art.

Shot was handheld. Some unsharp mask applied. Camera is Rebel XT (350)

Thanks in advance,

The flower stands out nicely against the dark background. This is a lovely shot and if I had to criticize it somehow, I would say that it's almost blurry. But then that could be just my vision :lol:

Much of the scene is out of focus. Would it be better with a deeper depth of field?

Thanks very much for your kind comments!

i would have preferred a little more dof, and maybe concentrate on the top two flowers, i dont think you needed the stuff in the lower part of the frame... this lighting was great, i think with a little "manipulation" of the flowers, you could have got some stunning glow-through backlighting.. just something to try if you get a chance..

Thanks for the suggestions, Dustin.

I did a quick crop of the picture as it exists, but didn't like the result. It looks too "flat", and the out-of-focus parts now become really annoying.

Although these flowers are now passed, I will see if I can't try again with something similar.
