I recently read an article about taking photographs of flowers. In it the writer said you should have enough depth of field to make the whole flower sharp. I thought about that because it can be difficult to achieve but I agreed it is better. Then I remembered this photo I took recently. I actually wanted to blur the flower somewhat because my focus (get it?) was on the water droplets. I had to work at a balance because I wanted the eye to go to the water drops but didn't want the flower to be unrecognizable. This was exactly what I was looking for.
Unfortunately I didn't note the exposure info here, maybe I will look it up at home and add a comment later. Hope you like it.
