  1. wow very nice. how did you do that effect?

    • Thanks. Shallow depth of field, low ISO setting. I wanted to soften the beach rocks in the background to make the feather seem like the stronger, sturdier object- an attempt at reversing perceptions. Normally I would have used a macro lens, but in this case I used a 70-200mm F2.8 lens, backed away just far enough to pull the feather into focus. Sorry- long answer to a short question.

  2. The twig clings to the delicate feather. Dresses itself in a lacy dream of being a flower.
