  1. Now this I like – you know exactly where the point of focus is and the shallow DoF is lovely. Great vibrant colours as well!

  7. The colors are so bold and enthusiastic, what a great image.

  8. Wonderful shot. This is the style that I normally think of when I think of you. (I know that you love to have a narrow depth of field, which keeps bringing you back to your DSLR).

    • Indeed, this is my favourite kind of photo πŸ™‚ But I’ve just bought a new camera and two new lenses, they’re on their way from a shop in Belgium right now.. Maybe different styles are coming up on this blog! Although I like flower close ups way too much to give them up completely of course πŸ™‚

  12. Great picture, Calee. Lovely that you didn’t allow any other colours in the image.

    • Thanks so much, Patricia! I first wanted to add something else for the contrast, but in the end I decided that the blue is enough colour splash on its own. πŸ™‚
