Default DOF-Deer in the mist



When I first saw them on a foggy evening last winter I thought they were lawn ornaments. I like the photo for the the separation provided by the mist as well as the relatively shallow depth of field. But you know what bugs me whenever I look at it? That grass stem. What do you guys think - would it be naughty to clone it away?

I say go ahead and clone it out. Consider it a dodge and burn issue in the darkroom -- artistic latitude

Yeah, I'd clone it out, too. I don't think using the software is "cheating" - there is art in both the creation and the manipulation, don't you think? Any yutz can work a mouse but you have to have an eye, an education, and a "feel" to know what you want and accomplish it.

My vote is to leave the stem. But I come from the school of the picture is what you have in the view finder. I don't mind color correection and other fixes, but that is just me.

I vote for using cloning in this extraordinary picture.

Never heard of that school.

Great shot. Cut both of those grass stems - the one crossing the body of the deer at the very least. I see nothing wrong with doing that. That's artistic license and that picture is art.

I've previously stated that I liked everything in sharp focus. This picture demonstrates to me why that is not always a good idea. The soft focus of the background intensifies the effect of the fog!

See my PM to you.
