The second image is, for me, more successful because it leaves intact the subject's focal plane, as in a tilt-shift effect.
    Thanks for your feedback - I appreciate it. I'll be a little more gentle with the tool, should I choose to try it again.

    @Brie: Love the regia shots. Gorgeous.

    Thanks, and actually, I can't grow any Drosera worth a damn except capensis and spathulata! Most of the others hate me. Oh, wait....I can grow D. roseana reasonably well. I don't know why the Drosera hate me, but they do. Never mind.....there's always this!!!:
