    Not sure what you are trying to achieve, the centre of the flower or the
    flower, but you can't have it both ways in this situation. The
    composition is wrong - the yellow leads you there, but you have all this
    distraction around the edge. Even though the centre of the flower is
    sharp the edges are out and blending into the blurred background, the
    only thing that saves that is the contrast between the petals and
    foliage. I think you have over sharpened the image and should try more
    DOF to lift the flower out.

    Thank you for your expert comments about my use of the new tripod.

    The photograph doesn't demonstrate the use of a tripod. Rather it
    demonstrates the opposite.

    Is this your first tripod? If not, why did you need a new one?

    Actually it demonstates quite well, if you have a look at the area in focus
    the DOF is very narrow but it is nicely focused because it was held nice and
    No actually I have three tripods and a monopod, I use them all for different
    purposes. This was really an upgrade where I have kept all my heads but
    replaced the legs with heavier ones.

    I don't only put my cameras on my tripods by the way, I have mounts that
    lets me place a remote flash in a position of my choosing rather than always
    on top of the camera.

    I disagree. Small DOF indicates wide aperture which allows a fast shutter
    speed. If wind were non-existent then you would most likely have been able
    to hand hold to get the shot.

    As for the picture itself, I find the petal edges quite distractingly odd
    I'm so glad you've kept your heads, Pete. :)
    That was a given.
