A series on winter textures
Stunning, outstanding dof and point of view. Nice one.

I repeat what Graham said: outstanding use of DOF. Well done1

This is just so pretty. Love the shallow DoF.

great DoF - it really works well with the bright red colors in the foreground and background.....

Superb use of DOF. A lovely shot Tracey!

Beautiful Tracey, I love the focus and colour in this shot.

I agree; great depth of field. As is is 2.8 it may be straight out of the camera, but just wondering if the DOF is enhanced in the post processing of it as well? I don't have anything that will go to 2.8, so I am also jealous. :-)

@Bonj: Hey Bonj, thanks for the comment! No, the DOF is not enhanced in any way whatsoever. The only manipulation was soft light layer and contrast adjustment. Oh, and I resized and sharpened for web. I actually have a 50 mm lens that goes to 1.8! Gotta love those shallow DOF! Also, remember the DOF depends on the focal length of the lens and the distance from the camera to the subject, so it is just more than the aperture! Hugs...
Yes, these wide apertures work a wonderful magic I have a 180mm f/2.8 that I would use more often if it were not so heavy !

Super. What an enormously clever use of DOF.

Thanks and the teacher/tutor is showing. :-) Definitely a good thing, especially with this topic. I still need to find a place in my brain to upload all of the photo info I can find and put a Google Search Engine on it, so I can quickly retrieve all of it. Who knows "Google Brain" might be their next product, but not sure where I'll find the memory upgrade.
