Don't be afraid to get close. If your lens can focus, get closer until it cannot. Then back off a smidge. A little blur can work for you. It adds mystique, depth and interest. By contrast, blur can accentuate form and texture. In this image very little of the subject is actually in focus, just enough to show you the pointed tips of the thistle. Shape eclipses overall detail here and it is just right for me.
