I love it. That's the kind of stuff I try to do but with very little success!

If I recall you have a Rebel XT? Try using a small f stop to give a small depth of field. Go into aperature priority mode (aV on the dial) and turn the black control wheel to the left, so you get to something like an f3.5 or so. I personally find it easier to manual focus for shots like this a lot of times, gives more control to what is clear and what isn't. Then, shoot away and when you get your picture, crop in tight to the subject of interest.

Notice at this site how the smaller f-number gives you less of an area that is in focus.

its actually a rail/support from a late 19th century walking bridge.. i shot it at approx 300mm at f5.6.. then in ps i converted to b&w and gave it a bit of tone..
