- Photos you have taken in the last month of which you are proud?
@Bonchance – that looks like it was just a wide aperture which gives a small depth of field (less stuff in focus).
To replicate it, look for something on your camera that controls the f stop (aperture priority or full manual). A smaller number gives you a wider aperture which in turn gives a smaller depth of field.Posted 3 years agobenmanMember
Since we’re on the subject, it’s worth highlighting that the depth of field, i.e. the amount infront and behind the focal point that is in focus, gets exponentially bigger the further away from the camera that the focal point is.
At f/1.2, something that is say 1m in front of the lens is likely to give a depth of field as shallow as maybe 5cm. At 3m+, as you can see in the picture above, it might be a few metres.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
So many great photos on this page I don’t know where to start! I love Kit’s waterfall, there’s more than a touch of Ansel Adams going on there! And I love the shot of Polarisandy’s with the white house set against the fell.
The colours in geetee1972’s ‘shadows in the rain’ shot are gorgeous too.
Here’s several taken at a gig in Bristol recently, couldn’t get right down the front, sadly, but they’re not too shabby, taken with the phone:
Rather pleased with them, under the circumstances.Posted 3 years ago
Pictures of your own kids are always a bit moot when it comes to whether they are any good or not. They are you own kids so it’s kind of irrelevant. PolarisAndy always seems to buck that trend with the shots of his son (love the use of light in some of them on his Flickr account). I’m hopeful this one does also:

We have a tradition for going into central London on the Sunday between Christmas and New Year. This year we went to the Imperial War Museum. I got two that I was particularly pleased with, one in particular I am very proud of. Which do you think it is (i.e. which is the better shot)?:
