Yes Aram, I was not as precise as I perhaps I should’ve been. Yes, the petals
are wonderfully precise and sharp - what I was intending to set forth was that
past images with different sensors had a hard digitized edges to petals in the
focus point and seemed to my eye greatly separated them from the background,
leaving almost a void before my eye picked up the brokeh/back-ground. The
blending that I was referring to was the lack of that hard division and
digitized edges of the petals. Sonny’s current image just had a lovely flow to
my eye from the sharp petals into the brokeh without the digitized boundary.

don’t see his premise that the petals flow into the background. They seem
razor sharp to me. No blending at all, unless I am misinterpreting what he

Good morning and thank you, Sonny. I’m sure it’ll make some others happy too,
Mr Carter. That is a very lovely image.
I went back through your archive of "Friday Flowers” quickly, and the A7r3
sensor really works well with your eye for composition. I enjoy how the edges
of the petals aren’t as abruptly clipped from the background. Everything just
flows easily from focus to brokeh, and the colors great! Thanks, Sonny.
