The flipped version is cool. Julie might knows this better but seems to me that some times, specially macro shots, the whole subject is never fully in focus so that some part maybe in focus sharp and clear and some other part is blur. Is this the normal trend. Kind regards. Jaki.

it is easy to lose focus in macro shots,* for most DoF, detail etc...you need a tripod and i shoot at f22, when i use the 6T close up lens the DoF is extremely shallow and unless everything is on the same plane the focus will quickly fall off. these are artistic descisions you have to make as to what you want most in focus and if the out of focus parts look good (having good bokeh) and enhance the image. losing focus around the edges here is ok because the color in the flower starts to blend and i feel, enhance the shot, while the center and bee are more in focus.

Gorgeous SteveDak! Looks like you and macro are getting along just fine. Your DOF is awesome...shows off the detail of bee and flower wonderfully.

Hey thanks for the kind comment Stitch,

The original is exactly how the bloom was hanging but Julie's suggestion of rotating the image really improved it no end.

Steve, rather than all that playing around in Photoshop rotating your images, I have found that by simply turning the camera upside down can achieve the same results!

Even better if one stands on one's head whilst taking the shot :?
