I like these intimates, too, and have tried to create similar images. They are very challenging and, because I'm very particular about them, I often find more that I do not like more things about them than features I do like. I think we need to focus our attention and efforts on the backlit edges that are sharp, as that is the real draw of this scene. Like many, this image is too busy with sharp elements intersecting with OOF ones and no real separation of individual grasses. Having bright, blurry areas right behind the sharp edges we really want to look at is bothersome. There's too much stuff going on here with too many grasses and too many overlaps. I'm not trying to disect or dismiss your image. If there were just one or two grass fronds separated against a dark background without any of their upper parts running off the edge of the frame, you'd have oohh's & aahh's all day. Did I mention that it is not easy to do?
