The limited DOF does help focus the eye on the spot where the break is, Mick. Just hope this is not on your own property.Wink

Was the baby boom:

(a) the opposite of the big boom,
(b) a companion of Northern Rock,
(c) the place where the phone hackers broke through,
(d) the result of the big bang?

The public needs to know!!!



P.S.: A canny bit of lens work there, Mick Smile

From the thumnail I was convinced this was a piece of wood. Should have known better shouldn't I?! Serious bit of rust and rot to make a piece peel away like this. The limited DoF works really well with diagonal comp.

You are going to have problems welding that back together, MickWink
Did you forget to check the camera settings so this dof thingy is a lucky accident?Tongue

Good thick rust.

A fine piece of dof it is too Mick. Great subject matter here. I love the gaping hole right where the plug once filled one.

Loads of lovely flaky bits in it, I would sit and pick at these Grin. Think the shadow of the spout looks like a body and head, well it does if you twist your head a bit. A bit like my brain - twisted and flaky TongueGrin. Did think it was a branch from the thumbnail. Moira

It must have taken an awful lot of care to screw that tapered nut into such a decrepit thread, Mick Wink. Excellent attention to detail.

Great use of DOF here Mick great control makes the eye focus on the most interesting part of the image with the help of that diagonal composition.

You must teach me the secret of rust hunting lol.

Well the shallow dof was an absolute rust .... er I mean must, here Mick - it focusses the attention nicely on that wonderful piece of flaky, decrepit, corroded grot. Great shot. Go on, go and buy a Lensbaby - you know you want to Wink.
