The picture is shot with a macro lens, and a shallow DoF (depth of field), and I like the effect.
So, do not shoot a 'sharp' pic, like terlmann suggested.. I like the blurry background as it is.
Myself, I also like to shoot macro pics, and I always have the lens wide open, for shallow DoF..
( I have a Olympus evolt E-500, doesn't compare to your (Surfcat) 5D, even still it's pretty darn good )
Let's see if I can find something 'Sabayonish' to shoot, I'll post something (I guess).
