@fairuz: Terimah kaseh!
Here I am seeing the quality of your vision balanced with the limitations of a camera perhaps? It's good photo because you can see the everything you are going for. It's a good reflection of what you are going for. It is missing a little crispness in the foreground no? I like the light that is spilling onto the upmost blooms/fruits. In the upper right bloom/berry there is an alabaster-like quality of the gathered light. If these things are still in bloom you may want to go out in the morning or early evening light and change your angle to get more of that translucent quality on more of the blooms/berries. That time of day may offer you a little more darkness in the background making your foreground pop more. What you've done with you FOV to create the selective focus is very nice. I've noticed it on a previous image as well. I'm hoping it is intentional on your part and not a happy accident made by the camera! : ) (To anyone else who is reading this, Margie, a close personal friend, has asked me to critique her work constructively. I'm not a stranger giving her a hard time.)

@Henry: OK, now that I've got over my initial urge to say "I have no idea who this man is!" I'll respond.
Yes I was trying for the selective focus thing. I didn't quite get it how I wanted - it does lack a little crispness but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway. We were sitting outside in the brilliant sunshine under a tree and I looked up and the sun on the flowers caught my eye. Unfortunately it was in Christchurch so I can't go back easily at dawn or dusk but I will remember that advice. Thanks a lot, amigo!
