"physically" the front and rear lines of focus would have to be parallel . There is no real way it would be angled, like the front when the rear line is straight.
The face of the sand mound, as Mike pointed out, was angled with respect to the camera position. Can't take credit for intending to shoot it that way, but it was one of the reasons I selected this image from the rest."physically" the front and rear lines of focus would have to be parallel
I debated doing that (and still may in the final edit). I had thought the contrasting color to the blue was interesting. In monochrome, I think you're right that it would be just a distraction.you might need to get rid of the orange, blurred thing
That is a great point.One benefit of cropping the foreground area that is out of focus is that doing so would make the bird look so small against such a large sky.
