I guess that proves a picture is worth more than a thousand words.

I can't take the credit it for the tree--one of my very creative co-workers put it together

Clint, you've got a pun for everything don't you??

Good capture but the shot could benefit from a smaller aperture (greater DoF). It looks like the bottom half of the "tree" is on focus but not the top. You must have used a very wide aperture.

tullio,

aperture = f/2.8 shutter = 1/40
wb=auto, iso 400

i still get confused about aperture. what would have been a better setting?
small aperture = wide open? large aperture = small?

thanks for your comments. always useful and i'm always learning.

When the "f" number is small, the aperture is open. You get a very narrow range of distance in focus, thus you get the "fuzzy" background and foreground, often called the "bokeh".

Hi, Mary...!

To get more Depth of Field (DOF) use a smaller aperture (larger f number)...

Here's a nice interactive site that lets you play with aperture, shutter and ISO
settings to see what they do... Click the box that says, "link aperture/shutter"
and then move the aperture slider back and forth to see what different apertures
do regarding DOF...

http://www.kamerasimulator.se/eng/?page_id=2

Here's another good site with a tutorial about DOF...

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tut...h-of-field.htm

Hope something here helps...
