Sunset


In this photo I used a very shallow depth of field so that the grass stalks are not even visible. This makes the tops appear to be floating in the air.
Also the sun and background is so blurred that it seems more like a painting than a photograph.

Maybe, but if you read on the plumbing doesn't sound too swell (one faucet that you 'drag' over to both the bathroom and kitchen).

Sweetest Day is v. similar to Valentine's Day, but more of a "Hallmark Holiday." It's gaining steam in other parts of the country, but it's primarily celebrated in the Great Lakes Region-- Ohio being the #1 state in the US for Sweetest Day. If you type in "Sweetest Day" in Google, you'll find a shitload of info.

Thanks for your comments on my site, I appreciate it. I like your "Sunset", I too love to use extremely shallow DOF.

Chromacrab, I really love shallow depth of field.
The way I see it a robot can take a photo where everything is sharp and in focus, it skill to make the viewer look at the subject differently.

Thanks for your comments.

Good saying,about the robot. Yeas really nice picture, love also how you actually got the sun as well. How did you take the shot? Really short exposure? Any other light sources? The grass seesm well lit but you have the sun behind...

For this shot I used a very high aperature (1/6000-1/8000) since there was a lot of ambient light coming into the lens.
I just used natural light so I think the tops were lit up well because the sun diffused through them.
