What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look at you subject from various angles to make it an intimate landscape. I took other shots that were only the plants but they didn't grab my attention.

Great idea, wonderful use of shallow depth of field to emphasize subject. Something to think about. Bright areas will always attract the viewers eye in an image. In this image, the bright top of the photo dominates the image even though it is out of focus. In addition, this creates such a contrast from top to bottom that it makes it harder to see the little plants.

Thanks, Rob. I see your point. It was a foggy sunrise scene. If I had changed my position in relation to the plants the background would've been a very different photo - next time I'll try that. That morning I shot a lot of backlit high-key photos.
