Macro Monday – Intimate with bachelor’s button

Another memory of summer. I planted a wildflower bed in front of the house to have a colorful and always available subjects for photography. That evening, I was trying to get a different then usual image of bachelor’s button. I absolutely love the colors in the image, in fact I made a bit more blue than they were to achieve this effect. I also changed the crop of the image, from original 4×6 to more focused 4×5, which removed some negative space on the sides. The image might look soft at spots. No wonder, it was shot with f/8, which in macro photography can be considered wide open, as is doesn’t provide sufficient depth of field. It somehow suits this delicate flowers.
