    From the rain chain in our backyard. We have these instead of downspouts.

    Yes, it's still daylily season here. I shot this at about noon time, with what is rapidly becoming a winter sun. The exposure is a bit too much, I think, though if it went lower, the image would probably be too dark.

    This one feels kind of underexposed and I'm not too psyched about the background. It did get the depth of field pretty well, though.

    Tom, thanks for encouraging work with DoF. It made me finally get out the manual for my camera and start playing with the A program.

    I was just gonna say that!

    Remember when seats were open, wide, and you rode them wide open?



    I am not happy with the background, I couldn't get it blurry dangit!

    Wow! Statdawg your first shot is awesome. I'm not certain I'm gonna post this week, but dang you set the bar high!

    Very nice use of an inventive technique with excellent composition and subject. Your second post is too, but I would have quit with the first one.

    I like that one quite a bit. It makes me feel like I'm getting ready to go greet visiting riders, which is always a treat.

    I think you focus on the exact item you want to show most clearly. I think of the shot as a series of stacked planes, one of which I can choose to be in focus.

    You can expand or contract the thickness of the plane that's in focus by altering the aperture.
