Frank’s theme this week is ‘Focus’. We’re all supposed to try and get our images pin-sharp, apparently, but sometimes a little judicious out-of-focus or bokeh seems to make the focus stand out even more.

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.
