I photographed this mum with most of it in-focus and then with soft-focus with the sharpness focused on the middle. I really like the soft creamy effect of the soft-focus flowers that I've seen from other photographers, particularly Kathleen Clemons. You can see her site via this link: http://kathleenclemonsphotography.com. However, I am really struggling to get a similar look. Below are two versions of the same flower.
