This is an image i took yesterday of a statue in my backyard on my patio. thought it had some interesting contrasts. my question...

if you notice, the "hair", that is closest to the lens, is blurred, on the statue's head. i'm trying to understand aperture more, and DOF...what would need to be done to really get that, as well as everything else, in focus? open up more (higher aperture #?)

tech info: shutter: 1/3200th aperture: f/4.5

would i need to use about an f/6 to get that in focus? just curious.

any critique of this image is greatly appreciated as well. i'm doing some test shots trying to get an understanding of DOF, and this is one of my first.

thanks so much

try f/8 to f/11. the smaller the aperture number is, the small the depth of field. at a small dof, anything behind or in front the point of focus will be blurry, i.e the hair.
