Hello Des,
I realy like big close ups and this one is great. Lovely blurry effect. It is so difficult get a big DOF, even using f/18 with this kind of POV.
Very good job MF.
Best wishes,

PS: Today I started write critiques/comments since the last time I was here on TN and my Green faces suddenly finished. Anyway I`d like to say that I realy liked your post. Have a nice week dear friend.
