First thanks for the support on the last image, and the award Pete.

I keep telling myself colour or black and white, not both. But on this one I couldn't resist. Its the mono conversion of Sundays image (see for tech details etc).

Some may remember a forum post I started a while back on long lenses and differential focus (if thats the correct term). Well this is what I was after, and its the first set of images I'm reasonably happy with.

Its a style I want to incorporate into my work. As with Sundays to get the best out of the DOF effect its worth having a peak at the large version if you get time.

Anyway all comments welcome

Wow - I thought the colour version was special but the mono is even more so Nick - really accentuates what you were trying to (and did) achieve with the focussing. Excellent work!

Maybe it's just me - but I think the mono has more punch.
