Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

This slightly blown rose was standing all alone in the nearby village of Lesterps and for some reason which I cannot now remember I was unable to get very close to it for a conventional sharp flower image.

However, by cropping as I have and retaining some of the blurred, out-of-focus background (reinforced by a little vignetting and dehazing in Lightroom) I think it stands out at least as well as it would have done if it filled the whole frame.
