Specific Feedback and Self-Critique
I wanted to catch this slightly underexposed in the late afternoon shade, as then the flowers take on a very attractive shade of blue, rather than the pale blue or even violet tinge which they have in strong sunlight. While I stacked 10 photos, I still found it impossible to avoid a few soft patches, as the action of my lens is pretty “insensitive” to my manual focusing - much as I love my macro.
