Searching for the light

It's been sometime since I put up a shot of some flowers. Today I've dug into the archives and found something a bit interesting for Sunday, something to lighten up you day.

It seems like The Streets has the more amazing work as I did more work today on that blog as far as getting images is concerned. Check it out!

This is a great shot for a Sunday! It reminds us to stop and remember what a great summer those of us in the northern hemisphere had this year.

I like this, I like the colours and also how you've only got two or three flowers in clear focus, it adds interest.
Lovely shot Jide, well worked. Super DOF and nice framing. Regards, Neil.
Wonderful DOF...

Great DOF, and I love the dark background. Very very nice.
Very very well done !!
The composition is great, I am not sure if the multiple focal points thing is working....It has my eye wandering all over the frame.
I like the idea of the focal points, just not sure this is the ideal image to practice it on. An easy vibe coming off it though, smooooth!

Lovely shot. The black background really enhances the yellow of the flowers.
