I have a deep appreciation for photographs that expand on reality, that put the focus (pun entirely intended) on either a different aspect of the world or, as this photograph does marvelously, present the commonplace as extraordinary.

Not that this flower isn't extraordinary in itself, but it is a flower, something that everybody has seen--and even marveled at--at one point or another.

Your vision here is what transforms this from an image of a beautiful flower to a beautiful photograph. The shallow depth of field, the blurred background and the composition all unite in perfect harmony to create something lovely.

I, for one, am happy you've decided to share this soft, magical version of reality.
What do you think?

I prefer this one from the set. Chickweed makes good photos. The bokeh works well with this view.

Very cool, that you found out the name of this flower. I got a very old flowerbook with many illustrations from 1930 from my fathers books. Have to take a look if the flower is there in the book, too :D

However, I wish I knew myself the exact species of your shot, since there are many species of Chickweeds, and many are very similar.

I hope you will manage to identify it :), though apart from sites, I also search in books or ask local botanist's opinions.
