I will try DOF when i get out again weather permitting. Thanks for the discussion too, will read with interest.
Darren, i am near the Angel of the North in NE England. we got the snow last Thursday and it hasn't stopped and more on the way too. Guess you took that pic out of the window, must try that. E

Ah yes i remember you told me once before . It's hardly stopped all day here and we're due to fly to Fuerteventura on Tuesday (Edinburgh airport was shut for a good while today)
I want to play with my camera in the sun

Had you pointed the camera at that spiky bush and focused on it, you'd definitely see the difference in DoF between the various apertures. However, because you pointed the camera at the background trees (and they were pretty much at "infinity" as far as the camera is concerned), the difference between shots are very subtle. The blue of the sky varies slightly between shots. I find the three images (f4 - f6.3) to be the best, which is no surprise since this is the lens sweet spot on most P&S.
