Christmas (Cactus) Greeting Card

Trying for a greeting card-like image straight from the camera

The first image is as captured (red ornament, in soft focus, for an added effect)

Hover your mouse over the image for the Hallmark-touch

Nikon D800E, Nikkor 105mm macro lens, circular polarizer, tripod, natural light
RAW file processed in Lightroom; no adjustments other than color & tonal contrast

The red-ball ornament is a foot behind the blossom
Lens is nearly wide open for soft background focus
