Default What's the difference? snow pics

I took several photos on different settings after reading a site Clint recommended. Only took them from my front door as the snow is still deep and i wasn't going out there in the cold, lol.
The ISO is 80 on all of them but the F stop and shutter speed is different on all. I cannot see a difference - can you?
in order the settings are;
f2,8 1.1ooo
f3.2 1/8000
f4.1 1/640
f5.6 1/320
f6.3 1/250
two more photos to fiollow. all photos untouched just reduced for uploading.

Last tow phots were taken at;
F7.1 1/160 ISO 80

Thanks for looking

i'm not sure what diff you were expecting but adjusting aperture and shutter speed so you get the same exposure worked well. if you were thinking that something would go out of focus (probably that palm tree in front of you), well, it didn't. your little sensor has great dof. video guys love it. stills? perhaps not so good.

if you had gotten closer to the leafs and focused distant, they would have gone oof at the wide apertures. or if you had focused on the leafs, the distant stuff would have been oof. some more discussion at

Thanks Frank for replying. I altered the shutter spped and apature after reading a site Clint suggested so i was jsut playing and learning really and wanted to see what difference there would be by the alterations but i didn't see any myself so put the question to the pros here. 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

if you zoom and focus on the palm tree in front, with those big trees in background, you will notice difference between aperture 3.7 and 7.1 - as frank said.

here is another way u can try :

get a friend and ask him/her to be your model. make your friend stand in a suitable position that there is a beautiful architectural building (a little distance away) in the back ground like this::



then set camera to aperture mode and push the joystick. select 3rd icon (af mode) and set it to "face detection" for this time. press joystick again to exit.

now take pictures with lowest to highest apertures, and you should see some cool effects.
