“Coneflower Study”

I shot a group of coneflowers today, and came up with a few nice images, I tried to shoot them in pieces instead of the whole.  I used a very large aperture (2.8) and some pretty fast ss speeds, my iso was set at about 200 and I think I came up with some nice stuff.  What do you all think, I blew this first one up to 13×19 and it looks pretty darn good.

  6. I especially love how the point of focus is right where the seedhead meets the petals…it draws your eye right in.
