    Very nice work with the depth of field. Was it shot with a tilt-shift or is that post-production edit? Lovely colour saturation of the flowers

    The flower "carpet" is amazing. Great one!

    Tom, thanks! It was a beautiful place.

    Lilyan, cheers. The depth of field is all in camera but the image is made up of several frames stitched together, like a panorama, to obtain a very shallow depth of field over a wider 'frame'. The lens was a 200mm f/2.8. It's a technique I use quite a lot to obtain 'impossible' depth of field from a 35mm-based camera.
