  1. Fascinating! If you think about what each composition communicates, it makes you marvel at the emotion of a dewdrop…or a blurred petal. Those tiny elements definitely carry a kind of weight, felt in some visceral, non-scientific way. At least, I think so!

    • I haven’t ever thought of it that way, but you’re right. It’s amazing how something as simple as a change of aperture, and the resulting change in depth of field, can yield such a different feeling from otherwise identical photos.

  2. I must agree with other commenters…. Don’t delete!
    When looking at my photos I find it really hard to keep ones that are blurred or soft focus… Somehow my eyes don’t notice the artistic quality of my own photos when they aren’t sharp! I can see it in yours though 🙂
