Shallow Depth of Focus Macros

With tools such as focus stacking making deep focus images easier and easier to produce, its important to remember what shallow depth of focus can bring to a macro image. Not only does it tell the eye which portion of the shot we would like them to focus on, it also gives a heady sense of depth, by making things just millimeters apart show clearly as different focal planes.

Here the rules are broken even further, by focusing the viewer’s attention on the delicately pinked ends of the petals, while having the stamen at the center of the flowers extend beyond the focal plane.
