I notice these experiments of yours in using focus. Very interesting. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This one works for me.

If I have a criticism, it would be that those aspects that you WANT in focus should be sharper than the above.

I like the first version better, but neither are really sharp...

But your images raise questions that I never thought about before. I was taught the an image should "draw the eye to the main subject." I've been following this without questioning the concept for over forty years of serious photography.

These images of yours do not draw the eye, they Force the eye. The closest I've come to doing this is where I frame a shot so that the background is a blur.

So, accepted photographic wisdom says, "Be subtle," whereas you are grabbing the viewer by the back of the neck and saying, "Look at this!"

Is this your intention? Whether it is or not, it's an interesting idea, if difficult to implement. How well this concept would work can only be judged by more conventional subjects; or at least I wont be able to judge it. I certainly intend to experiment with this as soon as I have the time...
