Hello again

This time a perspective where I'm standing behind my front gate, looking out. Focus on the background.

It's clear to see one of the many bushes in my front garden....

.... but when I set my 28-135mm lens (set at 60mm, f4.5) to focus on the actual front gate wooden lattice, then that bush becomes nothing but a creamy background blur.

But now we can see clearly the square edges of the wood and even a bit of paint flecked off too!

Wow, so much difference a simple change in focus makes. Cool challenge, I love it!

Thanks for viewing. Sorry if this is boring to you... but I enjoy this type of photography a lot.
