That's some serious depth of field Mark! An excellent take on this scene! great composition too! My only wish would be for the rose to be tad more focused to make this image perfect! It can't be easy to achieve without your eye in the viewfinder.....Just a nit though, nicely done!
Thanks for the comment. I pre-focused on a spot and then slowley swayed forward and backward as I shot off some frames with a wireless remote. The rose was moving in and out of the thin DOF and this was the best looking capture even though the bloom is not in sharp focus.
