Exochorda x macrantha, 2 of 2.
Funny how technically inferior images can sometimes be the most dramatic. See the previous post for a technically superior but – in my opinion – more boring image of the same plant.
You can use a Lensbaby (which allows you creative control of the depth of field) to get this sort of dreamy effect. You can also do it with a masked blur in Photoshop. I perfer to use a macro diopeter attached to a long lens (Sony 18-250 zoom set to 200). See also previous entry here for a similar effect.
