The trees as the visual title is a neat touch. Yes, nice DOF that really works, my eyes wandering off yonder past the trees and wondering who and what I will meet. Terriric shot

@EYES WIDE SHUT: Thanks, I'd to stare really hard for a long time to come out with that title.
Love how this shot leads the eyes to the trees, wonderful work!

looks like the path to an enchanted forest :) cool shot!!

Good composition that leads to the trees and more.
Good title and good color. I'm not so sure about the DOF, being the trees the main subject, but... good one.

@Paco Díaz: Thanks PD. YOu're right about the main subject being OOF, I 've to think about that, it's troubling indeed.

Hey, that's original with the blurry background ! Good idea that gives another eye on usual things !

Interesting DoF in this one, although poossibly a bit too narrow!
5 Jan 2009 8:45am
@DaveB: I agreed about the narrow part, could have cropped more off the tree to stabilize the "top heavy" feel? Thanks for your comment, Dave.
positive dof ! amazing shoot

Interesting and clever! It took me a second to get it...it's a bit early for me. Nicely done.

@Laurie: I was afraid the title was too obscure, glad you got it too. THanks Laurie.
Beautiful... this looks like a fairytale land... this lovely blur of the background has a very good effect. Really an interesting shot, James!

"What's back there?", we wonder. Nice one.

Nice use of focus and a leading path up between two out of focus trees.

wonderful...like the beginning of our new year...we follow a path into the unknown.

Nice composition with these 2 trees and the snow

'Legs Eleven' . . nice touch and I like how you have introduced a touch of mystery with the focus.

I like much DoF used to create the history, even if the way seems all to trace and that an unavoidable door takes shape, no way is not certain and these is only the behaviors which will define the voyage. Thank you for this voyage ;)

Nice use of DOF... is this a fast lens?
5 Jan 2009 11:19pm
@PD: Thanks PD. The lens for this shot is an f2.0 35mm prime, it's my most use lens on the Pentax.
Cool shot, but maybe a touch more depth to the focus ;)

@Observing: Thanks. Yes, I might try that with my perspective shot next time and see what it does, thanks for the suggestion.
Great forest shot! Love the angle!
6 Jan 2009 2:06pm
A very nice shot - I love the selective focus you used. Sometimes the subject is better shrouded in mystery (and I envy you your lens).
