I took my camera for a little spin at lunch time and got shots of some of the roses growing down the street from my office. I cranked the lens aperture open as far as it would go (in this case F1.8) to get as shallow a depth of field as possible, to give the soft dreamy quality.
If all you heard was blah blah, don't worry about the technical stuff. Just enjoy the pretties!
I'm really pleased with the results. I hope you like them!
