    Nice framing for this shot - I like the way the head stones line up.

    Nice, Jim. Did you also shoot one with a shallow DOF?

    Well done, the light is perfect. I'm with Monika, wondering how it would look with a shallow DOF. Of course you could do that in post quite easily with this one.

    Thanks Monika. I will have to double check. I was changing my DOF back and forth as I was shooting because I wanted both options to work with, I just need to see if I did it for this one.

    To be honest I'm fine with the DOF as-shown - the sharpness doesn't matter to me because the V just forces my eyes down to the largest object in the scene (which also has the flowers helping it stand out and complete the image as well).

    I dig it, Jim. About time you came over to the dark side.:cool:
