    These pics hurt my eyes due to the amount of blur/out of focus. I think the image of the mossy wood, in particular, could be fantastic with a bit less.

    I get what you're saying.

    I sort of made that moss pic:

    I prefer the original as you get more texture out of it...at least I do, but it's all preferential anyway. Lovely spot to capture.

    You mean the first one (or the second)? Since they're different pictures. It was made with a P&S with a fixed 28 mm lens, so moving the camera slightly brings a whole lot more in or out of focus (very close by, that is).

    I think the second version is far better.

    I think I agree with you, and it's bigger as well, at least on my screen and that counts for something.

    Thanks for the input.:fistbump:

    My pleasure. I need to make more time for photography. I'd like to get into it a bit more heavily. I have a good starter camera with the D60, and I have some decent PS skills. Now I just need to make the time to pursue the practice.

    Back from a business trip to Singapore and Malaysia. Managed to make a small trip to Lake Gardens, close to Kuala Lumpur. The butterfly park is just lovely, what a pity I didn't bring my macro lens... again.

    Szeph nice photos as usual I particularly like the monkey and the cricket photos. I disagree with irate as the shallow DoF adds more interest and let's your eye know where to go, where as the second one m eye doesn't know where to start or end as there isnt a point of interest.

    But perhaps less so if the in focus subject matter is some randomly chosen part of a greater subject which the eyes are drawn to but then can't focus on as with my moss pic.

    I really like the first one crane, cdfs good point but at least it makes the overall image more interesting than the whole picture in focus "look this is moss" the end. With that in shallow focus at least for me I can appreciate the textures and look at it more than a second or two. But I do agree having a subject matter would definitely jazz it up.

    Cool stuff trini.

    That's funny; recently we were going through my grandfather's stuff to clear out my grandparents house (up for sale :( ) and he had boxes on boxes of awesome slides he shot--like a whole box from Watkins Glen.
