Hello all!

I've not posted in this section of the forums much, but I have viewed and admire a lot of the work many you put up here.

While I was in Greece on my honeymoon (a month and a bit ago) at one historical site there were 3 pigeons on an old stone wall (part of a fortress). I had my 100-300mm Canon lens with me and I snapped a shot, focussing on the pigeon in the middle.

(I know pigeons might not be classified as very "wild"... but in this sense I think they are still "wildlife"!)

Because of the 300mm focal length I used, and how close I was to the pigeon the "nearer" and "further" pigeons are out of focus, an effect I wanted.

What do you think? Any good.... your comments / critiques are welcome.

Best regards,

Paul

Nice composition Paul. Shows depth of field much better than a book can explain..

Regards to you and your new bride,

Robert

Hi Robert!

Thanks for replying to my post.... indeed if a picture speaks a thousand words, I hope my photo is at least worth a few! I agree that it does show / explain depth of field quite well.

I'm glad you appreciate the composition!

By the way, I love your avatar! Looks like a nice fish you have caught there.

And thanks for your best wishes for myself and my new bride. We're enjoying married life very much.

Paul

PS... as I don't think I've posted to you before, I've gotta tell you... my twin brother's name is Robert and my dad loves fishing (as I guess you do!)... so you seem to relate closely! :-)

This is a good example of depth of field - much more serene than the example I remember in a photography book I read - they used headstones and you could read the inscription on the one in the middle, but the fore and aft ones were fuzzy...
