Daisy - shallow DOF

  1. Daisy taken using the Nikkor 105mm micro.

    Not sure whether the shallow depth of field works for you, but I quite like the softness and the gradient effect.


    Flash used : No
    Focal length : 105.0mm (35mm equivalent: 157mm)
    Exposure time : 0.017 s (1/60)
    Aperture : f/5.6
    Whitebalance : Manual (shade -2)
    Metering Mode : spot

  2. Jonathan, this is very different. I had to look at it awhile but have decided I really like it. I like the little green area in the bottom left and like you said, I too like the softness. Very unique!

    That definitely is shallow DOF....but it's nice...It reminds me of one of those personal affirmation posters that you see in Hallmark stores and such....Good job.
  4. Jonathan;

    Beautiful shot! The shallow DOF really adds a feeling of depth to the image. Well done.

  5. Thanks Kevin, Leigh and Brian for the kind comments, glad that you find the image interesting :wink:

    Wow! I love it! I really dig captures that are off the norm...

    Well done.

  7. The lighting accompanying your shallow DOF gives the image a very interesting effect. Nice job.
