Challenge: Soft Focus II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Panasonic DMC-FZ5
Location: my home
Date: Aug 20, 2006
Aperture: F3.2
ISO: 80
Shutter: 1/50 secs
Galleries: Nude, Floral
Date Uploaded: Aug 20, 2006

I originally was going to title this "Naked Ladies" because the flowers are called naked ladies. However, I wasn't sure everyone would know that naked ladies refered to the flowers and thought it might be better to change it.

To create the 'soft focus' effect, I cut out a piece of plastic grocery bag to fit on my lens and cut a hole in the middle. I am very greatful that someone mentioned in the forums that soft focus isn't just an out of focus picture, and how to achieve the soft focus effect. Thanks! :)

Breathtaking... I am ever so glad I came back to re-visit this image, as I missed some very important aspects of it on my first pass. I do hope the voting public takes the time to fully appreciate the piece of art you have created here. Very well done indeed.

The composition of this shot feels very awkward.

Looks good, but the background it's a little distracting

Good photo, but I'm not a fan of the edges.

The soft focus is well done here, but I'm not sure about the "strategic" placement of flowers.

I like the light colours, the pinks go nicely with the whites and I like the softness in this image :o)

Great photo!!! The flower subject was great but the background made it a winner in my opinion.
