Allen Haggett captured this image with a Nikon D70 on aperture priority at f/36, ISO 400. This is different from most flower images, which I am glad to see. I don't know what lens was used and I am not sure why the aperture of f/36. was selected. Even with a macro lens you could use a wider aperture and still get the whole flower in focus. This appears to be a little underexposed, and you are losing some details in the shadows. Next time you could bracket your exposures and I would try a wider aperture. This is a nice image, it just needs a little better execution.
