[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am playing with light to create bokeh.
This is the best I got from my experiment.
I wanted to name it "Light, Flowers and Bokeh" but I changed my mind. :-)

Taken in Mercer Aboretum in Humble, TX

Thanks for viewing

nice DOF....
natural tone...love this

Very nice HienVy! You can make the bokeh stronger by making sure that there is strong light behind the objects you are shooting. It's just something that takes practice! This is very nice! Works well here! I have never been to Mercer Aboretum, I'll have to visit soon!

dear Hien Vy,
wow, you shot beautiful flowers with nice "bokeh" at f/5.0...
I like shallow DOF on macro picture, it shows us beautiful blurred scene,
and this your back is very attractive,
thank you for your wonderful shot,
