Miss Haversham and focus

Points of Perception

Different each day

Yesterday I shot a series of photos of the dried heads of a mallow plant.  Pretty when flowering and a pain for spreading in a small garden.

I trying to choose which image I might use (if any), it became a balancing act of today’s preferred point of perception.  Full field focus on the delicacy of a head, a number of heads, or varying focal interest with minute bristles showing up, unseen by my aging naked eye.

I’ve gone for the latter, with a range of soft focus and sharp detail intermixed, against a diminishing line background.

Today I like this delicate, fey looking one.  Tomorrow?
