Challenge: Shallow DOF III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Sony DSC-H5
Location: Athens, Greece

Aperture: F2.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60

I took this photo during sunset with the sun behind the trees. I used the program mode in my camera (Sony DSC-H5) with daylight white balance and ISO set to 200. As I was at some distance from the flowers I zoomed in to try and capture more detail. I quite like the top left part of the photo as the flowers seem to melt away even if it is overexposed due to the sun. Probably a mistake that I didn't have the tripod with me as the flowers on the bottom right aren't as sharp as I would have liked.

During post-processing I adjusted the brightness (to 20), the contrast (also to 20) and resized to 500*375 (for the contest) using a freeware program xnview (//www.xnview.com).

These blossoms are pretty but could use some more light on the in focus ones. Also, a little more DOF would provide more context in adding detail to the background blossoms.
