Soft Macro Technique

There are many techniques to create a soft Macro look.  Usually one is concerned that everything is in focus, front to back in Macro Photography.  However there are times that a different approach can yield nice results.  This rose was shot with a maroon background outdoors with available overcast light.  The Maxxum 7D was on a tripod with a 50mm 1.7 standard lens and a Canon 500D closeup filter attached.  It was fun exploring the petals and selecting which one should be sharp.  At f1.7 the rest would go soft, my intent! There was minimal editing in Photoshop.  Enjoy, Jeff
