Macro Yellow

Took this handheld macro in a strong breeze while on a photowalk Friday night. I was pretty surprised with the amount of detail I was able to capture in the shot given the conditions. One of the more challenging macro shots I've attempted that came out as well. I had to use a fairly low f/stop due to the fading light conditions, combined with my desire to use a low ISO to reduce noise in the shot. This resulted in softened petals, but I really like the effect and the softness it provides to the shot.
