Nebraska about 3years ago said: Rob, thanks! I used a long (300mm) telephoto lens to create a close-up (I find it works better than a macro lens) image with a shallow depth of field. I was able to get a magenta Day Lily and other greenery in the (blurred) background. I didn't sharpen as I usually do and left the image a little "soft". I'm glad you like it :-)
