That's something prime lenses do really well at a much lower cost. The other drawback to zooms is they tend to distort at really short focal length.

If you wantthe best sharpness out of your kit lens, use it at 24mm.

Here is another take of it:



Think I prefer the first one composition slightly better actually, but prefer the DOF on this shot

WOW!! I love that very creative.

What do you lot think?



I may try another shot, maybe getting a closer shot of the flower in the water, making it more foreground, with the vase/background out of focus in the background.
