Wait. Stop. Breathe. Pause. Soak in the beauty, the stillness, the wonder.
To keep this image looking soft and almost fluid, I used a shallow depth of field - f2.8, blurring out all but the edges of most of the petals. I softened things up a little further in processing, with a preset as well as with some manual adjustments until I was happy with the outcome.
I wanted this image to be inviting, soft, pleasing so I intentionally avoided the fine detail of the petals' surface.
