The DOF was shallow intentionally - did not cover the leaves at the back or near the camera. I focused on the bud.
The shot was made slightly worse off by a light breeze that may have caused a bit of movement. Maybe I should try this again with a faster shutter speed.
Don't really understand your exposure comment.
At the time of catching photo i think your hand or you moving too much for this photo look blurring specially front leaves of the bush.Right & left side of the whole photos exposure do not maintain well so picture not looking good .
