With Christmas right around the corner, the florists have lots of Poinsettias. I set one up in the basement to shoot. I was using my Nikon D7000 and a Tamron 18-270 lens.
I set the little cluster of flowers in lower right area where the right thirds and bottom thirds meets. I used f/32 on the first image to get it all in focused. I processed with the Oil Painting filter in Topaz’s Simplify4.
On this shot I changed the comp and used a shallow depth of field at f/2.8. I focused on the little cluster of flowers and got lots of out of focus areas. I like the f/32 better with more in focus.
