This Image Is Supposed To Be How It Is With POF.

As you have asked for critique...

The river draws your eyes into the frame and riverbank and that is where your POF should be, selecting the shrub to the left in my honest opinion does not work in this image.

I've seen your comment above which states you wanted the focus on the foreground, leaving the background slightly blurred. Personally (and remember this is just my opinion), I don't feel this works - there needs to be a stronger subject in the foreground. At the moment, because there isn't much in the foreground it almost looks accidental (which is why I don't feel it works). I agree with Trev, I would have liked the river in focus. As I've often said in the past, if you like it, then it's perfect! Smile

I've voted because I do like the scene, I can see what you are aiming for and I like the fact you are trying something different.

It can work Liam with pof close to the camera, and the background blurred, BUT the subject of focus has to be more interesting than the background, or at least the background needs to be much less distinct for it to work.

In this shot, the viewer "wants" to see whats blurred, and will find the sharp bush a distraction rather than a point of focus. Keep in mind the rule of thirds, - this is working against you here, as its whats ON the third that the eye will immediately go to. That weed at the bottom is also competing for attention here.

As simply an exercise in throwing the background out of focus, its would have worked much better using an aperture wider than f/8. This aperture leaves too much detail in the background.



regards
