I played with depth of field while photographing this Siberian Iris at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden this morning. I shot more than 30 images of this same flower, and found this one to be my favorite. While the flower is sharp, the background has a very shallow depth of field, making the bloom appear to float—love me some of that bokeh!
